I reinstalled the windows this morning and can confirm that the windows now seal tighter. This means less or no more whistling going down the freeway.

nice! I plan to tackle tinting mine once again, i swore off doing my own windows on the last s-10 i had. I may just have to give it a try again, only thing i like about paying to have it done is the lifetime warranty.

I am debating doing the windows myself again. A bunch of bubbles appeared overnight. I think I might just pull the windows and take them in loose to a tint shop when the time comes.

When they did my vans it had some bubbles and they used a hair drier and a pc of plastic to move the bubbles to the edge...before you pay try this..

A couple of bubbles didnt move very well, they used a pin to let the air out & did the hair dryer thing again..

Solid metal are better than tinted windows. Harder to shatter metal, too!

I see the brother's van has the street van wheels. Would he consider selling them?

Thanks. I like windows because you can see through them. Some bubbles showed up this morning that weren't there yesterday, but nothing too drastic.

My brother knows they are Street Van wheels and isn't interested in selling them. Sorry.

Finally, I will get started on my whistling fix this weekend! Thanks for the post and info. Hope it's generally the same for the GM's too.
