I *Really* wish I could tell you, but I have no idea. I had the military sales guy use his contact and tint the windows before I even took delivery.

...All I was offered was "light, medium, or dark" but no numbers. FWIW front two are Med, and Rear 3 are dark.

If I had to guess I would say around 25 rear/35 front. Visibility out the back is crap at night, but all you can usually see is headlights anyways, which I can still see.

The fronts, for how dark they appear on the outside have much more visibility at night than I had anticipated.

Hah, just responded to your thread a few seconds ago.

As I said in the other thread, i think it might have rubbed once on the highway after hitting a dip, but also had 2 passengers and a loaded trunk. Never noticed anything other than that once (if it even was rubbing)

3 Months later and still very happy, these things look great, even when they are dirty they just sort of turn to more a gunmetalish look.

And now, I can with confidence say, zero rubbing issues, even with 4 passengers moving around Jerez circuit

if you run ET50 @ the rears with same tires will it have rubbing issues ? thinking of using the same rims using 50s

setup as follows:

18 x 8.5 - 45 offset 225/40/18
18 x 9.5 - 50 offset 255/35/18

Check out the first photo of my last post, these rears sit pretty flush. I think pushing out any further would really be pushing your luck.

Also, brand of tire (as I understand) will have some say in the matter as well. One brand may rub, where another wont.

When i was sizing up I talked to Eddie at **********s. He really knows his stuff, and owns or used to own a 1 series.

The brand of Tire will make a difference whether it rubs or not. I have the exact same wheels and tire sizes, but my Toyo R1R's rub on almost any dip in the road. From the pics, it looks like the Toyo's are wider and more square than
the Hankooks your running.

I rub also with Michelin PSS tires 225/40/18 and 255/40/18 but I think going to a 255/35/18 will fix my issue. I have not found WHERE I rub yet, as its somewhere in the fender but the tires and fender show no signs of it.

I'm also lowered on BMW performance suspension. 2013 135i coupe
