Default About tints?

Hey every1, just wondering how does the % goes? the higher the % = the lighter tints or darker?

and don't Cops pull you over for tinting all around?

The greater the number the lighter the tint, the lower the number, the darker.

i'm thinking of tinting it this weekend at California Tint in Rosemead. It's about 30-45 mins from the IE, but i just live like 5-10 mins away... they're known for tinting and do a good job overall.. with the tint law heavy in CA, i plan on going 35% all around...
