I have the Grabber2's in 255/65/17 and they fit with no rubbing at all. I'm not totally sure about the 255/50's. Might have a few rubbing issues.
By the way, I love these tires!

The 255/50 are going to be a shorter tire, with less of a sidewall. There shouldnt be a rubbing issue, but they will throw your speedometer off.

I had the General Grabber UHP on my last WK

Fitted 255/60R17 and they worked out a treat

No fitting or rubbing issues, a huge (road) improvment over the Wrangler HP AW's that came as standard

Did 20,000 miles with no serious wear, these would do at least 50,000 IMHO

Looked good, rode very quiet, were OK in light off road duty but would not like to try them in snow even though they are snow rated
