Question Window tinting question

Do I have to worry about window tinting film "bubbling up" on my rear window that has rear defroster? Was wanting to get windows tinted but didn't know if this rear defroster wires when heating would create an issue with film. Thanks everyone.


What is it about the sound of a powerful motor screaming to life, jumping to the passing gear, and going. Or the feel of a car laying a parking lot signature that makes men smile and their hearts pound?

I have never had any problems like that. It should be fine as long as they did it right.

You shouldn't have a problem with the tint and defroster. The tint's pretty tough, it'll handle it. The hardest part will be getting it to lay flat and not bubble around them in general, not because of the heat.

rear window not a problem but make sure you get a high quality tint with a life time guaranty, and maybe even moleskin on the side windows, i have already had to replace them because of scrathes. this seams to be a problem with the s197's

I think it's really just the curve of the rear window that makes it start to bubble and come away from the glass.

Agreed! No problem with the back as long as they get all the bubbles out when installed. My door windows already have small scratches in them, in just 6 mo.

make sure you take it someone who knows what they're doing. then you won't have any problems.

Racing isn't about who wins, but who looks the best crossing the finish line.

The only issue I've heard of with tinting over defrosters is it will be more time consuming to remove the tint if you ever decide to do so.
