Window Tint Shades Chart – Window Tint Percentage Examples
 

Wyoming may be known more for mountains plains than it is for its hot, sunny days, but that’s no reason every car, truck, van, or SUV in Wyoming should not have window tinting. The sun can overheat vehicles even on cool days, and UV light is a danger even when the sun seems mild.
Solar energy in the infrared light wavelength can heat up the interior of a parked car beyond 100º degrees even when outside temperatures is only 60º due to a greenhouse effect that takes place inside the vehicle’s cabin when that IR solar heat passes through non-tinted car windows.
 
And vehicle window tint is absolutely critical for keeping the interior of your vehicle safer for driver and passengers by rejecting dangerous UV light. And it’s that same UV light that causes fading and cracking on the inside of the car, ruining the appearance of leather and fading cloth upholstery, damaging the dash other surfaces, and reducing vehicle value.
 
Car tint is a wise investment that can pay for itself over a few years thanks to smaller fuel and battery consumption due to less need for AC. And then when you sell the vehicle, it will have a much better re-sale value because of the protected interior. However not all car window film is legal in Wyoming, and window tint violation tickets can be expensive, so you need to make sure you get the best legal window tint in Wyoming to avoid citation.
 
Below, we will work through all the current window tint laws in Wyoming, which were enacted in the year 1996 and have not been fully revised to match new window tint technologies and product evolutions. To ensure your car tint is legal under Wyoming law, you have to know the visible light transmission (the VLT as it is abbreviated) percent of your tinting. VLT means how much light a tint allows to pass through, essentially referring to how dark and private or clear the film is; the darkest tints may have a VLT of 5%, while clear, see-through tinting may have 905 VLT. Be aware that even lighter, effectively see-through window film can still block harmful UV light and warming IR light, so you do not need dark tint to get many of the benefits of window tinting for cars. Of course for added privacy and the enhanced looks dark window tint gives vehicles, darker tint can be a great choice.
 

Windshield Tint Rules in Wyoming

 
As in almost all states in America, some windshield tint is legal in Wyoming. Cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans can all have a non-reflective window strip of tint applied to the windshield down to five inches below the top of the windshield glass, an area often marked off by an AS-1 line that is displayed at the sides of the glass.
 

Car Window Tint Laws in Wyoming

 
In Wyoming, cars (meaning sedans and coupes, not larger vehicles like SUVs) can have window tint rated at 28% VLT or lighter on all side windows and on the rear windshield. This window tint may be slightly reflective (or mirrored) in appearance, with reflectivity capped at 20%.
 

Van, Truck, and SUV Window Tint Laws in Wyoming

 
Wyoming tint laws for MPVs (an abbreviation for multi-purpose vehicles that refers to sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, RVs, and so forth.) may have 28% or lighter VLT tinting on the front side windows and can have window film of any darkness (including blackout privacy tint), on any rear side windows as well as on the rear window. As with car window tint in Wyoming, tinting for MPVs may be up to but not more than 20% reflective.
 

Other Window Tint Rules in Wyoming

 
A number of stipulations beyond VLT rating and reflectivity apply to auto tint in Wyoming, so read through this section closely, as you want to avoid penalties and fines for illegal tint.
 
Any vehicle that has any window film applied to windows behind the driver seat must have dual side view mirrors installed.
 
Wyoming auto tint laws prohibit window film that is amber, yellow, or red on the windshield, but there are no rules regarding window tint color for the film applied to side windows and the rear window.
 
Auto window tint manufacturers, vendors, and installation in Wyoming no not need to officially certify the tint as meeting state law, and stickers identifying legal window tint are not required in the state.
 
Wyoming tint laws do allow for medical exemptions to some tinting laws, so if you need darker window film on front side windows for a truck, van, or SUV or on the rear windows of a car, talk to a doctor about getting an exemption for darker window film.
 

Window Tint Violations in Wyoming

 
Window tint tickets in Wyoming are not a criminal offense, but the costs can add up if you are issued a fine. The minimum cost of an illegal window tint ticket in Wyoming is $110, and you can be cited multiple times if you do not get your illegal tint removed.
 
That said, police are also allowed to use discretion and can issue warnings for illegal tint that do not come with a penalty. In either case, a warning or an actual citation, it’s a good idea to get illegal tint removed, and it’s an even better idea to get legal auto window tint in Wyoming in the first place.
