Going Wider on Stock Sport Wheels?

I just picked up a 6 speed 135 and I am already having traction issues when I step on it, I imagine it will be a lot worse once I tune it....Can I go with a 225 up front (stock is 215) and a 255 in the rear (stock is 245) on the OEM sport wheel? I like the meaty look as well so that's not an issue.

sure can. that's a pretty common setup. get something sticky to compensate for lack of tread width

Do you know if it will rub at all if I do this? Same profile ratio right?
