Yes they will. I run 315/70/17 which are the same and no issues full flex... lots of people do.

315/70/17's call for a minimum of 8" for a rim size. I would not put them on a 7.5" rim and the shops I know won't even mount them.

I was thinking about 275/70/17's and there are a few that weigh less than 50 lbs. Was wondering even if they fit with a stock suspension without rubbing. They definitely work with a 7.5" wheel.

Well, the stock size on the JL Rubi is 285/70/17, which is 1cm wider than your proposed size... so yeah... it's going to fit.

Buckets full of people are running 35s (and larger) on stock wheels with no issues... The sidewalls are huge so flexing in another 5-10mm to seat is no big deal. Rim width becomes more of an issue with low profile tires, as you have little sidewall to deflect...
