Hey, yeah! So I had them professionally mounted and balanced - didn't trust myself to do it - the mechanic said he was shocked but they DID indeed fit, much to my relief. As others have said, they come very close to the caliper but do not interfere. After driving with them everyday for a couple of weeks now, there is NO rubbing I am pleased to report.
In terms of ride quality the WK2 rides just marginally harder than with the stock 17" rims with Forteras. Around town it's hardly noticeable, but at 75+ mph it doesn't chug along as effortlessly, but its still a WK2 with the same suspension so it's not like it's NOT smooth.
Also in my original post I said WK Laredo, but hopefully you gathered that I meant WK2!
