I've passed many cops and most don't bat an eye, but they always can give you a ticket. Pay to play, if you don't want to deal with potential pull overs or tickets, don't tint. Its also not possible to tint the tiny windows in front of the mirror, but you can do black vinyl over them from the outside.

Regarding inspection, there are many places that will pass you even with tints, you just have to know here to go.
It's possible to tint the small windows, you just need to patronize a shop that doesn't use recently released felons.

Right. If the felon has been out for awhile then they'll be able to tint the little triangle. It must have something to do with prison air or something.

Honestly, is it that easy to do? I'm only asking bc I'll get them done by someone that knows what they are doing. I always thought it was kind of wierd they never even tried.

On a side note we hire felons with non violent crimes at my job and they seem to last longer than most. Then again minimum wage doesnt bring the most enthusiastic or skilled candidates.

I had mine done by The Art of Tint in Brooklyn, http://www.theartoftint.com/automotive (Iím assuming youíre in NYC from your previous comments).

It was a couple of years ago, but they did the tiny windows without me even asking about them. Their work is top quality and Tom, the owner, was great answering all my questions.

For what it's worth in Canada,we can tint our back three windows as much as we want as long as you are ok seeing out of them but we cannot have any on the two sides or the windshield.The police are not picky about a little but they have meters they carry in their cars and if it does not pass they can tell you to remove it on the spot and they don't care how you remove it.
