Car Window Tinting

The Facts  

  • On average, Americans spend 90 minutes on the road each day. That’s more than 10 hours of UV ray exposure in a car each week. Meanwhile, most quality window tinting options, including those available at Coulter Motor Company, block 99% of the sun’s ultraviolet light.
  • It takes a car thief less than a minute to break your car window, snatch and grab.
  • Last year, the average U.S. household spent more than $2,500 on gas. With the price of gas only expected to rise, that means dropping more money at the tank per year.

The Benefits

Although the previous facts may be alarming, there are several ways to help protect against any one of those incidents, starting with window tinting.

Car auto tinting provides many benefits, including protecting you and your health! Whether you have a new or used car, tinting is a great option for many auto owners.

Overall benefits include the following:


While window tinting offers more advantages than just overall appearance, we have to admit, tinting provides a sleek look and feel to most cars and trucks. If going on appearance alone, remember to take various window films into consideration specially to reap from other long-term benefits.


It’s normal for people to want privacy. Some people may seem to spend more time in their vehicles than any other place, so privacy is top priority. With window tinting, there are a variety of color tints and shades to fit your needs in order to give you the security factor you’re looking for.


Car thefts can happen anywhere at any time. Besides deterring car theft, window tinting can help keep your car’s window from shattering upon impact with an object or if an accident occurs.


For those of us that live in Arizona, you know that it can become extremely hot in your car. Window tinting provides a cooling effect, reducing your car’s interior surface temperatures by more than 20°F. With cooler car temperatures that means less use of air conditioning, which equals more bang for your buck when it comes to saving on fuel.
