110/150 Karoo 3 fitment on GSW

I am aware the Heidenau and Sava tires for on the new GS rims. I am shopping for Karoo 3 tires and can score a set of the 110/150 size for almost 150 less. Want to know if anyone knows if they fit.

I have run the 110-150 combo without issue. I ran the Heidenau's K60's.

I am looking for the karoo3. I have also ran the Heidenau for 10000 miles on my last GSW but the sidewall on the Heidenau is solid steel lol. Was worried the Karoo might be over stretched.

Should work at least rear. The F800GS has 4.5" rear rim and comes with 150/70.

I'd be worried about the front. Would expect them to steer even slower when the profile is more flattened than it is with the stock tires.
