Will any 130mm wheel fit into 135mm dropouts using spacers?

As title, my bike has a 135mm flip flop hub but there are not many of these around it seems.
As long as the axle is long enough to locate in the dropouts (skewered - probably not a safe overlap as its usually only about 5-6mm per side) or have enough overlap for retaining nuts, then yes any 130mm wheel should fit into a 135mm frame with 2 x 2.5mm spacers.
Otherwise you could always replace just the axle shaft with a 135mm shaft.
