Was the tint the initial reason for him pulling you over?

My truck has 20%(I think, could be 35%. Was on it when I bought it) all around, except windshield, and I have never once been pulled over for it. This is DD'ing it for 4yrs or so including the Thruway every day. I think the type of vehicle makes a big difference in whether or not they hassle you for tint.
