Flat tire ques..

I just had a flat tire changed and noticed that there is now a larger gap between the top of the tire and the car on my 2 front tires. Is this normal? Thanks

LOL, no, it was not my imagination. When I went to clean the car, I could fit this big brush in the wheel well, where before I could only fit my had. I can only assume that springs decompressed a tiny bit while up on the jack (Just a wild guess, don't know anything about tires), but has now settled almost to where it was before.
