I had asked tire place to replace 2 new tires. On there was 275/40/17 wanted to go smaller, but 2 of the tire are still good. Wanted 2 put 275/40/17 on back and 245/45/17 on front. They put the 275's on the front and 245's on the back. Is there going to be a problem with that or is it mainly for loooks? Should I have them put the 275 on the back like i'd first thought? Thank you for your help!

Normally you would want the larger 275 40 17 tires on the back. Because its rear wheel drive, and it will help with traction. Make sure they dont rub when suspension is compressed and also changing the tire diameter to something the vehicle was not equipped with can effect certain things like the speedometer and abs.
