Default Window Tint Question

Hey guys, so the day I got my max I tinted the windows, rears were 5% and front about 80%.
I have already asked if you can double tint windows and I was confirmed that you can.
So now my question is, can I triple tint a window?
It may sound like a very dumb question but here's the deal, I have 5% tint rears right now, and I told my brother to get me the precut tint off eBay, and he took forever so I just got it myself, and today he brought me a precut 5% tint sheet for all rear windows + front (I don't plan on putting fronts I already got a fix ticket) anyways I received MY precut tint sheets about 2 days ago and now I'm left with 2 5% sheets of tint, first of all, would I still be able to look back at night? Second is there a chance that the tint will peel considering there are 3 layers? Again Im not saying Im doing it, but if the results are good I wouldn't mind doing it, why throw away a good sheet of tint, might as well put it to use, so please give me your suggestions/advice, thanks

Why do you need to do this?? I've always had 5% and even 2% and never thought that it wasn't enough. Is this some kind of OCD problem?

I hate that about Cali, I got a fix ticket and I swear If you were to see how tinted my front windows are you wouldn't even think I have tint on it because of how clear it is.

I've been very lucky,no tickets...yet. I did get a ticket for a tinted cover over my license plate. He commented about my windows but let it go.

It's a fix-it ticket. Use to be $10 after you get the ticket signed off by an officer.. now it's $25. Basically, it's the fee for case dismissal in traffic court.

Honestly I never liked tint over tint. When I did 5% on my chevy by a shop it was pitch black even daytime so I guess it depends on the film. And yes here in NJ is same law as California and it sucks so I hear you on that. @07maximan yeah I just got a plate cover ticket too and I think it's going to cost me $54, but the tint I have court and it sucks. I only had 25% this time which you can see right through.
