Whats The Darkest Legal Tint In South Carolina?

The percent of visible light allowed through your car windows is called VLT: Visible Light Transmission. The shade percentage of your window tint is also the VLT number.

The legal tint shades allowed in South Carolina are very specific, and the permitted shade percentage is different for sedans, SUVs, and vans.

Tint Darkness For Sedans:

  • Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed above the manufacturer's AS-1 line. 

  • Front Side windows: Must allow more than 27% of light to pass through. 

  • Back Side windows: Must allow more than 27% of light to pass through. 

  • Rear Window: Must allow more than 27% of light to pass through.

Tint Darkness For SUVs and Vans:

  • Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed above the manufacturer's AS-1 line. 

  • Front Side windows: Must allow more than 27% of light to pass through. 

  • Back Side windows: Any darkness can be used. 

  • Rear Window: Any darkness can be used.

Is Reflective Tint Legal In South Carolina?

Window tint can reflect incoming light and reduce glare and heat. However, South Carolina window tint law prohibits certain window reflection when using a window tint. Therefore, mirror-like tints and colored tints are currently illegal in South Carolina.

Tint Reflection for Sedans:

  • Front Side windows: Must be non-reflective. 

Back Side windows: Must be non-reflective

Tint Reflection For SUVs and Vans:

  • Front Side windows: Must be non-reflective. 

  • Back Side windows: Must be non-reflective.

Keep in mind that South Carolina tinting laws and regulations may be interpreted differently in the city or county that you live in. Therefore, we recommend double-checking our information with your local DMV or law enforcement authorities.

Is Ceramic Tint Worth It?

Yes! Not only is ceramic tint worth it in terms of blocking heat and UV rays, but our nano-ceramic tint is structurally a better window film than dyed tints and hybrid tints. Nano-ceramic tint by Kavaca and Ceramic Pro is guaranteed to never bubble, peel, fade or delaminate like other tints. 

Economy tints usually have no manufacturer warranty. They will begin to bubble, peel, and fade within a year or two in the South Carolina heat. You will end up paying more to have the cheap tint removed and replaced than you would have paid to have ceramic tint installed once.

How Much Does Ceramic Window Tint Cost?

A typical four door sedan (similar to a Toyota Camry or Honda Accord) costs around $549 to tint all the side windows and the back glass. Many customers who have an SUV with factory tinted windows in the back will choose to only tint the front two windows. In this case, ceramic tint is $269. 

Windshields are $249 for all cars.

Is Ceramic Window Tint Better?

Yes! Ceramic window tint is the most advanced window film available. Ceramic window tint will block up to 97% of the heat making your car much more comfortable. You will notice immediately that you no longer feel the heat from the sun on your body while in your car. On hot days your car will cool down quickly.

Ceramic tint also blocks 99% of UV rays that can cause cancer and cause fading on the interior of your vehicle.

Additionally, our ceramic tint is shatter resistant. Shattered glass will remain bonded to the film and the film will prevent the shattered glass from collapsing. This feature can prevent break-ins and thefts and can also keep you more protected in the event of an accident.

Ceramic tint also blocks glare better than traditional window films.

Does Ceramic Tint Look Hazy?

No. Ceramic tint by Kavaca and Ceramic Pro has exceptional clarity. When compared to traditional dyed films and hybrid films, ceramic tint is much easier to see through at night.

Why Is Ceramic Tint So Expensive?

Ceramic tint is manufactured using the highest quality materials and is a much more structurally sound wind film than traditional tints. Instead of using dyes, ceramic tints utilize nano-ceramic particles that will not break down, fade, change colors or bubble like other tints. Our ceramic window tint comes with a written lifetime warranty.
