Default Tinting in Chicago?

So, does anyone have any recommendations for a shop that does a good tint job in the Chicagoland area (preferably near the western burbs)? I know the rear hatch window is a little tricky with those damn dots at the top.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry i dont have any shops in mind, but what i can tell you is when i was looking around on prices it was sooo damn expensive. I guess it is becuase there isnt many people that get tinted windows in illinois. They wanted like 300 bucks to do just the back window! So i said fu*k that and i went on vacation later in the year to florida to see my dad so i drove my car and got the windows tinted in florida. The side and back windows professionally done for 125.00

A friend of mine recommended Precision Glass in Orland Park he said he got all his windows on his Grand Prix done for 200 bucks and they did a very nice job

I have a guy that does it out of his garage in downers grove. Does a great job. And puts the rear hatch in one piece. He does tinting store fronts for a living, and cars on the side. And he is not expensive.

Midamerica Tinting in Schaumburg is supposedly highly recommended.

Hey importpatrolws6-

Could you pm me that number, I need tints before summer and I'm in DG on a weekly basis. If he can do it cheap and good I might try him out! (I've been quoted about $300 at midamerica, higher elsewhere.)

Riggs tinted mine twice, never got it right, and started to peel after the second time.
