Color of car helps, white cars have been known to stay cooler, combine that with tints and you should be good.

Another thing is tints will help in slowing your interior from fading due to the sun, something some folks might care about.

My wife had a 99 Corolla when we lived in Oklahoma. The heat pretty much deteriorated some of the finishing tape (stickers to match the interior color) on the inside of the door. We tinted all 4 door windows and the back glass. There was a dramatic change in the interior temperature after the tinting was completed. Check your state laws, but I would say do it.

How's seeing out the back window with a 0% tint? Is it fine at night?

This website says it does help.

My wife's xB had no tint when we bought it in June several years ago. The difference when we got it tinted was remarkable.

Here's my 2017 Corolla iM with tint. I got 35% in front (legal limit) and 15% in back. Looks nice.
