Have an issue with my new rims in that the negative offset on the spare means the rear camera is picking up the rims and is beeping non stop every time I'm in reverse. Seems the fix is to extend the camera out so it's not in the way? But not sure if this is possible or if there is another solution

It is possible, but I don’t know of any products that do it.
If memory serves me, the camera is screwed onto a bracket that comes back to the lugs. If you’re good at metalwork you might be able to make one. Or get someone to make one for you. It might get crushed when you change the spare out though.

Wow that sucks. So everyone with offset rims like this have to deal with the beeping non stop? I wish at least I could turn off the beeping but can't find that option. Could I turn it off with a tazer?

Is it the camera or the sensors in the bumper that create the audible signal?
I was told by the dealer that the bumper sensors are seeing the edge of the spare tire. Not convinced that is correct?

It is not the camera. It is the sensors in your bumper picking up the tire. You can put a relocation bracket on and that should help it if you are running 35’s. I can’t attest to anything bigger than that.

I believe it is a combo of the camera and sensors. Some people were so close they rotated the spare so the valve stem was up top and that stopped their beeping. I have no sources, I just remember reading it.
Aftermarket tire carriers have the potential to fix this. I have one from Maximus-3 and I believe the camera comes out further. DV8 has a tub-mounted cage style carrier that mounts the tire “inside” and places the camera on the back, keeping your factory bumper and sensors intact.

As has been said, it’s the bumper sensors. There is a button on your dash to disable the sensors (it has the P with a hazard symbol next to it I believe) but then you won’t have the function of the sensors anymore.

I would probably consider a relocation bracket.

It's not the bumper sensors as those go off when I am near something so it's a different beep. It's definitely the camera sensors as noted in that thread above. Also I do have a Mopar bracket relocation but that was installed when I got the 35s. So guess I need to adjust it for the 37s

Both. The camera and the sensors.
