SUV Legal Limits for Window Tinting

posted by Solar Shield, 3 years ago

The legal limit in Minnesota for any SUV/MPV/Van/Truck is 50% on the driver/passenger windows. There is no restriction on darkness in the rears. If you’re wanting to go darker on the driver/passenger, you can do so legally by obtaining a medical prescription for window film*. Light sensitivity is a basic reason for anyone to get a prescription for window film. We can even refer doctors if you want to go that route…

Eyebrows (dark strip on top of windshield) can also be legally applied if prescribed by a doctor. We usually apply 15% light transmission film for eyebrows.

SUV/MPV/Van/Truck vehicles:
Windshield: No tint is allowed
Front Side Windows: 50% or lighter
Back Side Windows: Unlimited
Rear Window: Unlimited

*Medical exemptions, such as an optometrist prescription, are allowed, in which case the vehicle can be tinted as dark as the prescription specifies. Though the car may still get pulled over, the prescription should be kept in the glove box and pulled out if the officer specifies illegal window tint as the reason for the stop.  The manufacturer glass is usually slightly tinted so make sure and consider that when getting the percentage written on your prescription.
