Ah, well again I would say to you, be careful about setting fixed
widths on them unless you are 100% sure nothing inside the menu will
be truncated. It's generally a bad idea to mess around too much with
widths of certain form controls. Users expect certain things from
them. Just because a designer CAN make everything align and the same
width to fit *their* preference, doesn't mean you should!

In any case, again you can set the style (but do it in a style sheet,
not locally):

<select style="width: 130px;"> etc.
