I need a full set of 225/45's preferable although 215/45's would work as well. They're for 17x7's so not sure if a 235 would fit correctly.

It looks pretty dark to me. The tint they put on my wife's 328 looks way too light, but once you're in the car it does a good job of cutting glare and blocking the sun and you can see out easily. I'm also not concerned about appearances or worried about the popo seeing what I was doing inside the car. So I'm cool with the lighter tint.

Yah, when I went to the shop and checked the sample tints, it looked pretty transparent on 35% and 20% looked just about right.
The sample tinted glasses were against the white wall. And I thought it would create the same effect with my beige interior

Well, I will keep it as it is for some time and if I get in trouble with the cops, will just rip it out. I just wanted to save my a$$ and hands from burning from the sun. I didn't think it would come out so dark. Lesson learnt, next time 30-35% is good for me.
At least I didn't spend a whole lot on those. It is $100 tint job with lifetime warranty, a friend hooked me up. Next time another $100 for 35%.

Yeah that's not a bad deal at all. My car has dark tint, I've gotten used to it. It sucks at night trying to back up.

Yup, steel gray.
The shop had 35%, 20% and 5% on display and I went with 20.
Should have gone with 35%.
Well live and learn.
I have to black out the window trim now to eliminate the contrast. May be it will flow better.

Isn't your window trim already black? I thought only the 330's had chrome?

Nope mine came with chrome trim standard. I already have the lower straight portions vinyled a couple of months ago but have been lazy on the upper curved trims. Now there is an excuse to do it.

Gotcha, I always said I was going to do that but I never did on my 330

It's all good man, thanks anyway.

Picked up a used pair in good shape for a great price off CL so I should be good until winter.

Tint in my sig is 25% IIRC, was perfect during the day but I had to roll my windows down when backing up at night, could barely see the SVM's.

Yeah. They are a 140AA tread wear rating. Those tires are a track-able street tire. Not really a good all-season option.

Out of the loop here. Just moved into a new place off of city park. I would like to make The next meet. Brandon, are you still down to trade those angel eyes for stickers/cash/beer?
