Surely the move to 17's is inevitable for us all - it's just a matter of when...

My 3.2 finally got tired last month after 334k, so my car's getting a 3.6 conversion; I have a fresh set of 265's on the rear 9's so I'll get to see if the extra oomph suggests a move to (wider) 17's is desirable ahead of any XS supply issue... (not entirely sure any excuse wouldn't do...)

But +1 on loving this gift from the tire gods... couldn't Kuhmo at least keep the supply going thru December 21, 2012? If we make it through, a move to 17's would seem but a small gesture of appreciation, and they could hand down a new gift ;-)
