No it isn't standard setup.

You should have 225/40/18 for both front and back if you're on standard wheels. 

The middle number refers to the height of the tyre wall, so the setup you mentioned would mean the car would be slightly elevated at the rear.

I'd be taking your car back and demanding they put the correct size tyres on. Fecking useless!!

That's wrong.... I'd get the supplier of the vehicle to fix that or at least make a contribution towards it.
