Tires too small?

I had 245/40/17 put on the original 10.5" front wheels. They look really weird. Are they too narrow for those rims?

The stock wheels are 9" wide and the OE tire size is 275/40/17 so if those are 245s they probably do look strange.

I am sure you have 9" rims, since it takes a lot of work and special fenders to fit rims that wide under the front. 245's are probably a bit smaller.
