How to increase cell width of MVC Grid?

I am developing MVC application.

I have used MVC Grid - Html Grid in it. I want to increase the width of the columns but I cant. I dont want to change the Grid CSS.

I have mentioned width property twice but none of it works...

Here is my code.

 @model IEnumerable<StockWatchScreen.Controllers.Customer>
@using GridMvc.Html
@using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

    ViewBag.Title = "Index";

<!DOCTYPE html>


    <div class="listheading span9" style="font-size:22px;margin-bottom:30px;margin-left:0.10px">Customer</div>
    <hr />
    <div style="width:500px;">
        @Html.Grid(Model).Columns(columns => 
                        columns.Add(c => c.Code).Titled("Code");
                        columns.Add(c => c.Name).Titled("Name").SetWidth(500);
                        columns.Add(c => c.Address).Titled("Address");
                        columns.Add(c => c.OfficePhone).Titled("OfficePhone");
                        columns.Add(c => c.Email).Titled("Email");
                        columns.Add(c => c.FaxNo).Titled("FaxNo");
                        columns.Add(c => c.City).Titled("City");



Can you try changing

columns.Add(c => c.Name).Titled("Name").SetWidth(500);


columns.Add(c => c.Name).Titled("Name").SetWidth("70%");


columns.Add(c => c.Name).Titled("Name").SetWidth("100px");
