i think 20 and 30 (or 25) look better but 35 is a good way to keep the cops happy heh

Get the same all around. Or different on only the back window and keep the sides the same. I think cars look retarded with different % side windows.

I have 35% all around and I think it's not too dark and not too light.

I did 20% on the sides then 5% in the rear looks great!! but it takes awhile to get used to the tint especially at night.
