I need help picking black wheels that fit over my backup camera

So I currently have the black Willys/Rubicon wheels on the jeep but am looking to upgrade to 17x9 so I can put 35's on them but I want to make sure it'll fit over my brandmotion backup camera. I was hoping you guys can post pictures of your black aftermarket wheels mounted on your spare tire holder so I can see if it'll fit with my camera.

I also posted a picture of how the backup camera setup is so you can see what I mean and I posted one picture of v-tecv raptor wheels which look like they could work because of the spacing between the wheel. Thanks guys!

I have often thought of this issue also. I would think if you picked a 5 spoke design that it should work, as for other styles of wheels I would have no idea what would work. May just have to study pics of wheels and note where the lugs are located to see if one of the slots or holes in the wheel will line up with camera.

I was in the same exact boat. Upgrading from my stock rubicon to a 17x9 5x5. I realized in the process of prepping the Jeep for bigger tires, that I'd want to upgrade the spare tire carrier. I went w/ the Teraflex hinge + carrier. Part of that kit is a mount (for third brake light) that sits in front of the tire so realistically, it doesn't matter any more. I moved my brandmotion camera onto that new small mount.

Food for thought...

I will probably trim it just a little so it sits closer to the wheel than it does in this picture. BTW: This is pre-new-wheels.

That's awesome! I was thinking I was going to have to upgrade to a tire carrier anyways and was looking into the teraflex one. Did you make a bracket to attach to the brake light? What did you use?

The Teraflex carrier came with a mounting kit for the 3rd light brake. What I did was chop off the short arm from my Brandmotion mounting plate and just bolt that to the 3rd brake light bracket. Pretty easy.

I can take close-up pics if you want.
