Did a fair amount of research and considering I just put Yoko YK580's on my 19's 2 months ago as well as a set of YK580's on my wifes 2006 Jetta TDi I had to go with a slightly cheaper tire against the Nitto's I wanted, no one had the General Grabbers in stock.
Full lock right, left produced no rubbing and when turned half lock either way I have just over 1/4 inch from tire to fender (front/back).
I gained 2.18" in diameter giving me a good 1" lift to clear a bit more than the stock ground clearance. Mainly I wanted the bite for the trails in 2 weeks.
I'd say it reminds me of my 06' V8 Touareg in stock air mode, wish I had air suspension or a small lift kit, just 1" would do.
Tip, if you run stock canyons, make sure to have the weights placed on the inside of the rim, the calipers will rip those right off
