After mounting a 33" tire on a gear head big block rim with 12degree offset, the backup camera is now not showing the correct picture. The dealership wants $500 for a relocation bracket. That ain't happening. Anyone else have this issue and is there a cheap fix?

I've got an LT315/75x16 HANKOOK on a ProComp 16"x8" wheel/w 4.5" BS as my spare and even though the REAR VIEW CAM shows some "RIM"-it still covers the major part of the REASON for the BACKUP CAMERA--

I don't care about the 3" at the bottom !

That may be what it is. It may be 5he edges of the rim. We're you able to fix it or just live with it?
I am having a hard time uploading pictures.

There must be a answer for both the camera view and the parking sensors????
My guess is it’s possible the camera can be relocated to give you a better view but as far as the parking sensors go I’m thinking not and the further the tire sticks out the more it can interfere with those sensors

You could possibly get a better view if you went to a wheel with not such an aggressive offset, my wheels have a -12 which pushes the wheel out a fair amount but if you went to say a -6 or 0 offset it would bring the wheel in closer
