Positioning with CSS

Hi Experts,
I would like to modify the position of the tabs with CSS so that it looks like the image on the right.
TabsCurrently the tabs are on the left side, but I'd like to center them and spread out the underline to take the width of the screen. I would appreciate your help.
Please see the code below:
.tabs {
	clear: both;
	position: relative;   
    max-width: 450px;
    margin: 0 auto;


.tab {
	float: left;

.tab label {
	margin-right: 20px;
	position: relative;
	top: 0;
	cursor: pointer;
	color: #000000;

.tab [type=radio] {
	display: none;   

.tab-content {
    position: absolute;
	top: 40px;
	left: 0;
	right: 0;
	bottom: 0;
	transition: all 800ms ease-in-out;
	opacity: 0;


[type=radio]:checked ~ label {
	border-bottom: 4px solid #1d1d1d;
	color: #ff0000;
	font-weight: bold;
	z-index: 2;

[type=radio]:checked ~ label ~ .tab-content {
	z-index: 1;
	opacity: 1;


<div data-tabs class="tabs">    
   <div class="tab">
      <input type="radio" name="tabgroup" id="tab-1" checked>
      <label for="tab-1">Page One</label>
      <div class="tab-content">

This is perfect, thank you very much! The stretch is not so important, I solved it with an HR positioned right under the text.
