Person applying window tint

Window tint is legal in Wyoming. However, there are several rules that need to be followed, such as what kind of tint is legal and how dark and reflective it can be.

There are certain factors that help establish how much tint you can add to your vehicle. For instance, if you have a sedan, the tint rules and regulations are going to be different in comparison to SUVs or vans.

Other criteria include the kind of tint you want to apply and which color you can opt for. The windows and windshields can have different restrictions as well.

Permitted Window Tint Darkness

Window tint darkness compared

The amount of window tint that you can use and apply is calculated on the basis of the percentage of visible light that can pass through the film and the windows, as a result. This is referred to as Visible Light Transmission (VLT). If the VLT is high, this means that more light can pass through the window.

You can take a look at the legally permitted window tint darkness (in VLT) for different kinds of cars below.
