135mm frame with 130mm hub

Hi I am having a bike put together but the wheels i have right now having a 130mm rear hub and the frame calls for a 135mm rear hub...its this gonna cause me problems or wear out my frame in the 1 to 2 weeks it will take me to get a new wheelset?

Thanks,
Max

my LBS said i shouldnt use spacers because then the nuts wont have as much thread to grab onto which would be worse

well as i said before Im getting a new wheelset within 2 weeks so I dont think its worth getting anything for my current wheelset...I just want to know if I risk the integrity of my frame by using the smaller hub for a week or so

thanks.
