Staggered Wheels, Sway Bars, and Oversteer

I'm curious to know something about this. On an RWD car with a staggered set of wheels, say 225 tires up front and 275 tires in the rear, the car will oversteer. We also know that having mismatched sway bar sizes will cause either oversteer or understeer depending on which side is the larger bar. This is where my question comes into play.

Would it be possible to compensate for the oversteer in such a staggered setup in my example above by getting a 1-1/4" front sway bar and a 1-1/8" rear sway bar? I know the "go-to" answer is to get an equal sized set of bars front and back.
