Default 245's On 17x7.5 Rims?

Hey all, I have an '09 IS250, RWD.

I have 225's on front, and 245's on rear.

Anyways I wanna replace my factory rims. I found the XD Rockstar Car rims, and for 17", they come in 17x7.5 with 42mm offset.

I called Discount Tire and they said it'd be fine. BUT I wanted to ask you guys.

Discount said my factory rims are supposedly 8", so would my rear wheels look funky on 7.5's?
