i really really doubt it.
as the adhesive on the tint will lift off the conductive coating

When Richmond Subaru had tinted my front windows, and then the new management kicked in, I received a ticket from the popo and paid it off.

Took it off the next day with a steamer to warm and melt the adhesive, then peel away. After that, clean up whatever adhesive is remaining.
