I like anything between 20%-35%. The law for tint in Missouri is and % tint for the rear window. And nothing darker than 35% in the front.. So if you want to stay legal. 35% in the front, and on the rear do like 25%. That would look good in my opinion. (here is the website that I am referring to, http://tintlaws.com/laws/MO/ )



Performance
CRABS o3, Custom Magnaflow Exhaust, WAMS Performance tune, Racingline STB

Exterior
Platinum Apex Rims (18x8), Hankook v2 215/45R18, Painted calipers (Red), Complete debadge , Handle Overlays (Gloss Black), Arrow Overlays (Gloss Black), Grille Lighting (White LED's), Tinted Tails (2 coats VHT Niteshades), Painted Battery Cover (Silver with Red), Painted Engine Cover (Silver with Red), Eagle Eyes Projector Headlights (Black Housing), Upper Recessed Grilles (Chrome)

Audio
2 12" Memphis Subs (15-MCP12S4)
600watt Sony X-plod Amp

I don't want you to do nothing ilegal but you should go for 5-15% I got 5% and it looks awesome! I live in Oklahoma and the darker you can have is 25%, but never been pulled over for this reason, I've been pulled over for other reasons and the officers didn't say nothing about the darkness, they only toll me that the tint on windshield was to low it was one inch more than the legal. but the only problem its hard to me turning at night or reverse.

i have 20% and am very pleased with it...i also have been pulled over for other reasons and the officers didn't say anything about the tint. like lexx19 mentioned, it is difficult to turn at night without street lights. as for backing up, ive always checked the area behind my car where i'll be backing up so thats not really a problem

I also have 5% all around with a brow. legal here is pretty much 35%. I love it. like before stated, reversing and turning with no street lights at night are more challenging. but I wouldn't have our any other way.
