Hey guys recently I change my front tires from a 245 to a 225, could this make my car look not as low as it did before?

It will still look the same height because the tire height is the same, the only thing changing is the width of the tire...

The tire sizes are very close in size but also keep in mind your new tires have an additional quarter inch of rubber. Technically your 225-45 would have a shorter side wall

245/45/17 is a very common stock tire size, I can't believe a tire shop around you didn't have them... weird...

225/45/17s are 25" in diameter, the 245/45/17s are 25.7" in diameter. So yeah you'll be sitting noticeably lower in the front from what it was.
