How much does tinting a car cost?

I drive home right when the sun is setting and move west for most of my drive. My sunglasses help, but I’m tired of the eye strain and want to get some tinting. How much does tinting a car cost?

Thanks for thinking of your eye health! The cost to tint your car depends on several factors, such as:
  • How dark you want it (this is often regulated by state law)
  • How many windows
  • Which windows
  • Your car make and model
  • If you want metallic or colored tints
On average, the price starts at $150, but an expensive tint can cost up to $1,000. You could attempt to do it at home yourself for about $50, but it’s not an easy process. It’s advised you have a professional tint your car.
While you’re thinking about how to take care of yourself and your car, make sure you’re not overpaying for the car insurance coverage you need. Jerry pulls quotes from up to 50 top insurers to find you the maximum savings possible.
