Purchasing a vehicle is a major investment. Window tinting can keep your prized possession safe from many hazards. The most important function of tinting the windows in your car or truck is blocking out 99% of ultraviolet rays, protecting you from skin cancer. Tinting the windows in your automobile also keeps your interior looking new by reducing the chance of the upholstery becoming faded or cracked.

Window Tint Security


Security is another major factor in installing window film in your vehicle. Having tinted windows in your car can lower the chances of criminals seeing into your vehicle so they are less likely to break into it. If a window in your vehicle does get broken the window film will hold the glass in place in most cases.

Colorado Window Tint Law (Enacted: 1995)


How dark can window tint be in Colorado?

Darkness of the tint is measured by Visible Light Transmission percentage (VLT%). In Colorado, this percentage refers to the 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.



Window Tinting

How reflective can the tint be in Colorado?

Similar to the lens of sunglasses, some tinting film contains metallic elements that help in reflecting incoming light and reducing the glare and heat generated by visible light.


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 are not legal by state law.

Side Mirrors: Dual side mirrors are required if the 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.

Another reason to have window tint on the windows in your vehicle is the increased cost of fuel. The air conditioner is working extra hard when you do not have any window film. Tinting the windows in your vehicle will allow you to run the air conditioning at a lower level, which saves you money in fuel expense.
