First question is when you all are experiencing rubbing, where is the rubbing?

I am trying to run a 22x13.5x37 with a -44 offset and I am being told it will rub by one person and it won't by another??

Anyone?

This guy does a pretty good job of showing where you'd expect things to rub if they do. I think a lot depends on how much you're flexing, but hopefully the video gives you a decent idea.

 
Get ready for the “why are you running 22’s on a jeep” crowd.

I’m thinking if anything, and just an assumption here, you’re not going off road with that wheel set up?
If that’s the case, you may only see rubbing turn-turn at full lock. However you do have -44 and 13’s, which should be fine. Also depends on how aggressive your tread is.
Seeing you’re in SoFLA, mud only? Still, if you’re not getting into articulation, you’ll be good, unless your putting a lot of weight in the vehicle.
Assuming stick Suspension, 35’s clear with no issues.
37’s are ok if you’re not articulating the axle much or linearly compressing the suspension.
Want you’re aiming for looks cool, but limits your OR use, endless you start getting into the suspension.

It wasnt me, it was a friend and they fit fine
 
Typical road driving my 37” BFGs rub slightly on the removable front bumper end pieces at full articulation, in reverse only

Don't listen to that stuff - 37s on 22s are just fine off-road, I had that setup on my Raptor with no issues in terms of off-road performance. It'll have 7.5" of sidewall, which is only 1/2" less than someone running a 33" tire on 17" wheels...which everyone would likely agree is a perfectly reasonable setup. If someone is going to claim that 1/2" difference somehow means you're not taking this off-road, they're high.

There are a lot of videos out on YouTube that show where rubbing is most likely to occur (inside of the fender when stuffed), so I'd suggest searching there for some good info.
