Top Professional Window Tinting in Central Ohio since 1973

For your convenience, we now install Window Tint on evenings and Saturdays by appointment.

Auto Options installs only high-quality, scratch-resistant window tinting film. Tinted windows block the sun's harmful UV rays, reduce interior fading, increase privacy, and extend the life of your vehicle.

Tinting also reduces glare, which provides a safer driving experience. In addition, tinting greatly reduces interior heat, saving energy and providing a safe and comfortable driving and riding experience for adults, children, and infants.

Our window tinting is available in a variety of shades and colors for all vehicles. You can drop your vehicle off for installation or wait in our comfortable waiting room while our professionals install your tint.

Our name-brand SolarGard Tinting Film is durable, resists scratching and fading and includes a Lifetime Warranty.

Do not be fooled by low prices. Some tinters quote unrealistically low prices and either use very low quality tint film or surprise you with a final bill that includes unquoted fees and extra charges. Auto Options quotes a fair price for quality tint with no hidden fees and a lifetime warranty on SolarGard film.

Auto Options has been a leading tint installer in Ohio for 43 years. Call us for a custom quote on your vehicle.

Highest-quality 3M Window Film is also available. Auto Options is the only 3M authorized installer in Central Ohio.

Window Tinting and Ohio Law

The darkness of window tint is measured by Visible Light Transmission percentage (VLT%). In Ohio, this percentage refers to percentage of visible light allowed in through the combination of film and the window.

According to Ohio Administrative Code 4501-41-03, on Ohio registered vehicles window tint must allow 50 percent light transmittance on the rear and side windows, and 70 percent transmittance on the windshield. In other words, the tint can not be darker than 50 percent on the side and back, and 30 percent on the windshield.

Ohio Law requirements:

Windshield Must allow 70% of Light In
Front Side Windows Must Allow more Than 50% of Light In
Rear Side Windows Any Darkness Can Be Used
Rear Window

Auto glass is slightly tinted from the factory, so Auto Options works with your specific vehicle to assure that you are in compliance with state law.

Fines for illegal tint can run as high as $200, so be sure to work with professional installers to keep your window tint legal.
