Can I Tint My Windshield and Rear Window in Arizona?
The windshield and rear window are two of the spots where automotive tint can benefit Arizona drivers the most. Since the front and back of the car are where the sun is most likely to shine during your commute to and from work (especially on the 60 and on portions of the I-10 and the 202 that run East to West), it helps to have tint to shade these areas, keeping you and your car cool and comfortable. The short answer is that drivers can definitely tint these surfaces, but in order to keep you legally compliant, you’ll need to install the right tint.
What to Know about Front and Rear Automotive Tint Laws in Arizona
There are different laws for automotive tint installed on Arizona vehicles depending on which window you’re working with.
Windshield Tint Laws
As you consider a professional windshield tint for your vehicle, be certain that you have selected a non-reflective tint. All tint above the AS-1 line set by the manufacturer must be non-reflective to be in compliance, and no front portion of your vehicle can have more than a 33% to 35% tint.
Rear Window Tint Laws
Laws for the rear window and back portion of your vehicle are slightly more lax. Reflective tints are allowed, provided they are within the 5% to 35% range and meet requirements such as being absent of smudges and bubbles and being a color other than amber or red. Dual side mirrors are also required for vehicles with rear window tinting.
