Space between rim and tyre after replacement

I feel there is a 2/3 mm space between my wheel rim and tyre which was not the case before i replaced the tyre to michelline primacy 4 on my mazda 3. Any chance the person who replaced the tyres did not do it correctly? Or this Is how it is initially after replacement.

I see the space in all 4 tyres after new tyre install. before they were replaced there was no space. Pic after replacement attached.

Please suggest if i should ask for them to be corrected?

I assume you used the same size tires; regardless, what you're looking at is most likely a difference in sidewall design.
