The tinted car windows provide a way to protect your car’s interior from sun damage, reduce glare while driving, and improve the overall appearance of your vehicle. Window tinting can also reduce heat in the vehicle. If you are interested in tinted windows for your vehicle, but do not know which color to choose, here is what tint to choose to have tinted windows.

The different types of tinting films for auto windows

The first step to narrowing down your auto glass tint choices is to understand the different types of films on the market. Window tint films fall into two basic categories: non-reflective films and metallized films.

The non-reflective film provides both heat and glare control through solar absorption. The most common non-reflective films are dyed films and they offer increased optical quality and clarity through powerful glare control. Dyed films are less effective at controlling solar heat absorption than metallized films which reflect solar energy.

Metallic foils reflect the sun to prevent it from damaging and heating the interior of the car and also help provide privacy.

What tint should I choose for tinted windows?

The car window tint the most common is gray, as this color goes with almost all body colors. This tint is designed to blend into the glass so it looks natural and sleek. Charcoal gray is similar to gray, but offers a richer, slightly brownish color.

Drivers also have a few other choices available, including gold. Gold tinted car windows provide a stylish look that is sure to make an impression.

If you’re looking for an unusual car window tint, talk to a professional to learn more about your options.
