making the fork drops wider

just wondering if it would be safe to sand down the fork drops so they would fit my axel. my front wheel is all bent up and i found a good wheel and switched my tire before checking if it fit.

ah yes and this is my first post, hooray!

How much wider is the new wheel? You could just force it on...

Umm...front wheel spacing should be 100mm. If it's not, your hub's probably put together with the wrong hardware.

I think he's trying to fit a 14mm axle into 3/8 dropouts. This was covered here.
