Is it safe to tighten the rear forks this much for a fixie wheel?

Hi all,

I have an alloy roadbike frame and I wanted to turn it into a fixie. However the hub of the wheel seems to be a bit smaller than the space on the frame and looks like this :

Is it okay to totally tighten the bolts making the frame bent a little bit inwards by this much?

Also, even when tightening the bolts to a maximum they seem to only get like 80% all the way. Is it also safe to ride it like that?

Thank you in advance
