How To Choose The Right Car Window Tint For You - BrisbaneHow to choose the right car window tint for you

So you’ve decided that you want to tint your car windows, but you don’t know what type of tint to get? Well, that’s fair enough—when you come to We Tint Windows, you’re spoilt for choice. So to help you choose the right car window tint for you, we’ve put together a list of things to consider.

Generally speaking, choosing the right car window tint isn’t about it being ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, but more about your personal preferences. You can’t really make a bad decision, but getting the absolute best tint for your needs is important to us.

Before deciding on a car tint, ask yourself the following questions.

1. Why do you want to get your car windows tinted?

The main reason that people want to get their car windows tinted can vary significantly. Knowing what your priorities are will help you choose the perfect tint.

For example, you might choose to tint your car windows to:

  • reduce the heat and glare in your car (especially during summer in Brisbane)
  • block damaging UV rays (especially if you drive a lot during the day)
  • prevent other people seeing into your vehicle (especially important for businesses)
  • improve the overall look of your car by adding a touch of style
  • enhance the colour scheme of your car with a coloured tint.

You may want to tint your car for one or many of the reasons listed above. But as long as you’re clear on what’s important to you, choosing the right tint will be much easier.

2. How much do you want to spend?

Budget is often a big factor when choosing the right car window tint. All of our window tints are high quality—from basic tints to premium tints. But each tint will look slightly different and perform certain functions to varying degrees.

If you want maximum heat, glare and UV reduction, you’ll need to spend a little extra. However, if you just want a standard tint for as cheap as possible, we have several budget tinting options.

At We Tint Windows, we strive to give you the absolute best prices possible. But before you choose a tint, make sure you know your budget limits.

3. Do you know what car window tints are available?

4. Is the kind of car window tint you want legal in Queensland?

Some darker shades of car window tints are illegal in Queensland, so make sure you do your homework before getting you heart set on a super-dark tint.

Commercial vehicles are allowed a 20% tint in Queensland. But this is illegal for ‘on-road use’ for non-commercial passenger vehicles.
