    I believe it is 20% for ALL windows (EXCEPT the fronts).

    i know for a fact that its not 20%. 20% is illegal in many states. its close to the % that i added to my front windows which was 34%.

    Back to the OP. If you are referring to the non tinted factory glass then i think its around 75%. the tinted factory glass on the rear window and rear side windows is around 32%.

    In Nebraska, the Fronts are 35% and the rear/back are 20%
    In Texas, the Fronts are 25%, Rear are 25%, Back can be as dark as 0%. My cousin lives in Houston and he put a cardboard on the back of his Excursion for years and no problems.

    Any window tinting shop has a gauge; they can measure the tint percentage for you.

    18% here and I also think it's a perfect match. Anywhere around that range should be good.

    I went with 15% and to me looks dead on at the fronts. Cant tell a difference. Very happy (but yes, illegal)

    Just got the wifes 4Runner Tinted not long ago. Went with the 3M FX Premium Automotive Window Film.
    They said that the front would need to be FX-PM 30 to match the rear.
    We ended up adding FX-PM 15 to the front and FX-PM 30 to the rear. It is a close match between front and back. Rear might be a little darker.

    This would be the same or very close for the Tundra.

    My front (side) window is tinted to just under 30 and it's definitely lighter than the rear (side) window.
