I got a complete bike a few months ago, front wheel has "safety washer". I'm putting old front tire on a new bike and I'm not going to use the safety washer but I'm wondering if I need to put a regular washer or is it okay without one all together?

You NEED a washer in between your fork & bolt/nut. Otherwise bad things can happen like a meteor will fall on your bike one day.

Seriously though you need it, prevents slippage, axle moving while tightening, and more.
