question about tinting for MA drivers

So I'm going to have the hardtop and side windows tinted next week. I want to go 20% on the hardtop like the factory tint level, and 35% on side windows per MA law.

But when I was waiting for service in the dealership, a guy said I cannot get 20% for aftermarket window tinting; factory-installed ones have some sort of approval to be that dark, which seemed to be confirmed when I looked it up online (Massachusetts RMV - Inspections FAQs , question 15 & 16). I don't want to be pulled over and redo the tinting, so should I go 35% for all glasses?

Thanks in advance!

No one I know in MA has gotten ticketed for tint. I had 35% in my other car and it was dark enough for me. I would not worry about it, everyone it seems has 25% and under around here.

I had tinted windows on one of my early bronco's I went to get a sticker and was denied. Just be careful where you go to get a sticker. ...

True. Totally forgot to mention that. Just put the windows down when sticker time comes around.

Welcome to TintLaws.com

Who says you have to get the sticker with the top on?

I was thinking more the front windows. They if its not january, can be rolled down for inspection. I dont think its an issue for the rears though.
