Why would you want window tint?
Avoid Overheating: With tinted windows, your car's interior can be 60% cooler during the hot summer months versus non-tinted windows. It is safer and more comfortable for you, your pets, and your children. You don't have to waste time or fuel running the air conditioner before you can get in your car and go.
Protect your skin: Harmful UV rays from the sun can cause skin cancer. Tinting your windows can block 99% of these damaging rays.
Accident Protection: In an auto collision accident, the window tint film can help hold shattered glass together, protecting the occupants and contents of your car or truck.
Fading and Cracking: The sun's rays (UV and heat) can cause car upholstery and components to crack and fade. Window tint film helps prevent fading and deterioration of your interior components.
Privacy: Tinting protects your privacy and the contents withing your car. What a thief can't see, he won't bother to steal. Also, helps with those awkward long red lights, and that guy next to you during the morning commute who just keeps staring.
What are the different shades (darkness) of window tint on the market?
Window tint is generally categorized as follows: film is sold as 5% (limo, or "blackout"), 20% (dark), 35% (medium), 50% (light). These are generalities across the industry. Surprisingly, most modern "clear" auto glass has a moderate blue-green tint from the factory all ready and reads about 70%. We will discuss your specific needs as it relates to Colorado law.

Colorado Window Tint Law (Vehicles, Summarized)
Window tint laws vary by state, and possibly by local city and/or county regulation. The following is general information and is not legal advice:
How dark can window tint be in Colorado? Darkness of tint is measured by Visible Light Transmission percentage (VLT%). In Colorado, this percentage refers to percentage of visible light allowed in through the combination of film and the window.
Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 4 inches of the windshield.
Front Side Windows: Must allow more than 27% of light in.
Back Side Windows: Must allow more than 27% of light in.
Rear Window: Must allow more than 27% of light in.
How reflective can the tint be in Colorado?
Similar to sunglasses lenses, some tinting film contains metallic elements that help in reflecting incoming light and reducing the glare and heat generated by visible light. It creates a 'mirror'-like appearance. It is generally not legal for use in Colorado.
Front Side Windows: No metallic or mirrored appearance.
Back Side Windows: No metallic or mirrored appearance.
Other Colorado Rules and Regulations:
Restricted Colors: The tint color(s) of RED, AMBER, etc are not legal by state law.
Factory Equipment: Federally mandated, factory equipment dark tinted glass may be excepted.
Side Mirrors: Dual side mirrors are required if back window is tinted.
Certificate Requirements: Manufacturers of film do NOT need to certify the film they sell in the state.
Sticker Requirements: State law recommends but does not require stickers to identify legal tinting.
