Narrow hub, 15mm gap too much to force?

Hi there,

i just laced some wheels up for a treasured (but battered) old Benotto Pista frame, I have used a little ‘torpedo jet rear hub.

I have often not been phased by the stays being wider than the hub, is almost say alittle is preferable somehow. However this hub might be a bmx hub or folding bike hub and is considerably narrower.

There is around 8mm gap on each side so total of 16mm. My instinct is that it would still be okay? Perhaps use spacer of sorts?

but definitely something I’d be keen to hear about others experience, do not want to misalign this frame!
