I thought OEM is 245-45-20? 50 mm profile may be a bit too thick.
That would answer the rubbing but I thought ecoboosted flexes came with 255/50's on 20's

Yes the stock is 245/45, but I am running the 245/50 also, but mine dont rub, if you are running 255/50, thats just simply too big. Mine are Goodyear RSA. Reason I went with that size (50 series) is it is a much more common tire, almost half the cost of the (45 series) when I priced them.
On another note I want to correct the above poster that the aspect ratio mentioned as 50mm above is not correct. That number is a ratio of "percent of tire width" and not a direct measurent, IE: 45mm or 50mm.

FWIW, my Limited Ecoboost with stock 20's has 255/45R20.
Just my .02....the tires pictured look good on the Flex. I don't know what difference it would make in clearance issues, but the tread looks a bit aggressive compared to stock tires I've seen.
