Example: If someone says they're wrong and they're right, so someone corrects them, telling them they're right, they deny it again, can you say "You're" instead of "You are"


If you say only "You're." (which sounds just like "your"), you'll be replied to with "My what?".

There are no contractions in English, spoken or written, when the only two words in a sentence are a pronoun and a verb ("You are.", "I am.", "He is." etc.).
