What do you mean by saying `advance width'? A glyph has afaik two different 

a) The tfm width, which is measured in TeX scaled points (typically) and
   is resolution independent.

b) The value chardx, which is the real advance taken by the renderer 
   (printer or screen) and which is necessarily an integer number of 

The latter value is not relevant for TeX tfm files, but is recorded in the 
gf and pk files. If the you mean the latter value, it can be corrected in 
the afm files without changing the related tfm files.
