Well it kind of depends upon how much you want to dissolve.

The solubility of chlorine dioxide is 8g/L so as long as you keep below this limit you can expect the reaction to work as you have written it ie far over to the right.

So are you after the theoretical rate equation for this or the equilibrium constant for the solubility? ie the solubility constant.

If the latter the reverse reaction will need to be taken into account as well, making it more complicated as you say.
