after putting on new wheels and tires when i go to put the camera cover on it goes on fine but when you turn the screw it doesn't attach to anything. am i missing something obvious or is it just designed to work with stock wheels.

Your new wheels likely have a different offset than the stock wheels and now the spare is sitting a bit further from the carrier, causing the camera cover to not go back on fully. If you have no choice you can run without the cover or see if you can figure out if you can modify it to fit.

Mine just didn't go back on. I thought about possibly looking into finding a longer bolt solution but honestly it doesn't look bad enough to really care about so I left it.

The JL's have 2 different camera covers. One is for the Sport with steel wheels and the other is for the Sport S, Sahara, & Rubicon with aluminum wheels. The cover for the steel wheels is longer and will not fit with aluminum wheels. If you started with a Sport with steel wheels and put aluminum wheels (after market or OEM) you will need the shorter camera cover.

I was lucky and mine fit after I went to new wheels even with the negative offset
