Go for something like this:

A truck tire with bad ass snow chains on it.



It will not handle much worse than what you were looking for and the chain gives you extra bad ass points with the other squids.

Seriously stick with the stock sizes for best handling. A wider tire will make steering more difficult and will not really make the bike feel any more planted on the pavement. In fact it will probably make it feel less planted. If you want more grip switch to a softer compound sport tire instead. They will wear faster and have a shorter life but grip dry pavement more. I believe the stock tire for your bike is 180/55/17. The problem with a wider tire is that it changes the cross sectional profile of the tire and makes it flatter. This makes the bike feel like you are riding with a worn out tire that has flat spotted in the middle. If you look at race bikes they almost all run 120s on the front and 180s on the rear even though they can legally any size rims and tires they want. Bottom line is wider does not work better. This is why you only see 200 and larger tires on cruisers with skinny front wheels - they compromise handling for styling.
