Yes, I think so. In fact one thing I know you can do for a fact is put on 9.5x19 with 275/35s and 46 offset all round. With any wheel set up tho, make sure you get the overall rolling diameters close as 140s are quite sensitive to it.

But why would you want to?

just make sure that the offsets are high, above 40 especially if you want wide tires in the rear.

the front is too low and the rear is a little high, that combo will not work. you need at least upper 30s in the front and mid 40s in the rear

for example et 38 front and 44 rear, if you use the right offsets you will also be able to use the widest tires possible for that size rim.

but 25 is way way too low of an offset for the w140.
