Default Advise wheel bearing

Replaced the front wheel bearings on my car today. The right side inner bearing was very tight when I placed it on the spindle. It too a few light taps with a drift pin to get it onto the taper portion of the spindle, once it was almost home it moved into place. The left side just slipped into place once I greased the spindle.
Question does the inner portion of the bearing need to move on the spindle? Wheel turns fine just wondering what your thoughts are.

Bearing was a timpkin so I thought good quality. The original bearing just slid off with no problem.
