fork blade stress

I recently bought a new front wheel, when I went to put it on I realized the hub is thinner then the fork spread. The hub comes out to about 9cm and my fork spread is 11cm, I was thinking of getting some thin nuts I could slip on the axle to act as spacers. Should I worry about bending my fork blades inward?

If the distance between the fork ends does not equal 10cm +/- 2-3mm your fork is bent. The front hub over locknut spacing should equal 10cm +/- 1mm, if not, something is not right with the hub.
