Center images within bootstrap carousel

I have been trying to create responsive carousel in bootstrap but images with lower width than carousel’s are moving to the left.

Here is the code:

.tales {
width: 100%;
}
.carousel-inner{
width:100%;

max-height: 400x !important;
}

<link href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.6/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.6/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

<div class="container">

<div id="carousel-example-generic" class="carousel slide" data-ride="carousel">

<!-- indicators -->
<ol class="carousel-indicators">
<li data-target="#carousel-example-generic" data-slide-to="0" class="active"></li>
<li data-target="#carousel-example-generic" data-slide-to="1"></li>
<li data-target="#carousel-example-generic" data-slide-to="2"></li>
</ol>

<!-- inner -->
<div class="carousel-inner" role="listbox">
<div class="item active">
<img src="http://placehold.it/1200x600/2c3e50/000" alt="">
</div>
<div class="item">
<img src="http://placehold.it/600x1200/d35400/000" alt="">
</div>
<div class="item">
<img src="http://placehold.it/600x600/c0392b/000" alt="">
</div>
</div>

<!-- controls -->
<a class="left carousel-control" href="#carousel-example-generic" role="button" data-slide="prev">
<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-chevron-left" aria-hidden="true"></span>
<span class="sr-only">Previous</span>
</a>
<a class="right carousel-control" href="#carousel-example-generic" role="button" data-slide="next">
<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-chevron-right" aria-hidden="true"></span>
<span class="sr-only">Next</span>
</a>

</div>

</div>

It is better to look at when snippet gets expanded.
It is taking way longer than it should..

set display:inline-blockin img and set text-align:center in .item

check snippet below-

.tales {
width: 100%;
}
.carousel-inner{
width:100%;

max-height: 400x !important;
}
.item{
text-align:center;
}
.carousel-inner img{
display:inline-block !important;
}
