Jeff, the spacer is present in the picture of the red wheel attached in this email thread.  Are you the one selling your FOR on ebay?

The front  and inside rear wheels on the FOR are the same as the Crosley CC, CD, and VC.  The outer rear dual wheel is obviously different.  The inner rear lug bolts are unique on the dual setup are different in that they have the male threads to mount the inner wheel to the hub and are also female threaded to accept the lug bolts from the outer dual wheel.  There is also a center hub spacer for the outer dual wheel.  The outer dual wheel uses the standard lug bolts as the rest of the Crosleys.

The outer "dual" wheel, is used only on the FOR. The inner wheel is standard Crosley. Between the wheels is a special wheel adapter, with male, lug bolt threads on one end and female, lug bolt threads on the other (outer) end. The outer wheel is retained by standard Crosley lug bolts.

Not sure where you are measuring but there is two size of Crosley rims and a multitude of non Crosley rims with the same bolt pattern, that size is/was used on lots of different trailers.

Could very well be for a Crofton Bug. 
They have wider wheels. I don’t have mine near me to measure.

1951 Super Sports for sale in NY

parkhunter@...
 

NOT MY CAR - this was posted on the "Crosley - Fun Little Cars" page over on FaceBook. After messaging the poster, I'm helping her out by listing it her. I can't answer questions about the car, so please contact her.

1951 Super Sports. "Runs great. Owned by a member of the club (Taren T. Cummings) and he would love to see it go to a fellow Crosley enthusiast
In NY. Accepting offers at this time please. Purchased a year and half ago or so for over 12k. Looking for a decent offer thanks."

From talking with his daughter-in-law Heather, Taren is having significant health problems and needs to sell his cars. Contact her for info, more pictures, or to see the car. The Crosley is in Pawling, NY. Heather (845-489-7726) is helping to sell.

Taren has regularly driven the car to local shows. His family loves the car, but they need the money. He would really like to see it go to a Crosley enthusiast.

Hoping somebody can help them out. Wishing I had the money and time!

IL Regional Meet Video

Jim Bollman
 

A friend sent me this link to a YouTube video. The first half is an antique tool flea market which is how he ran across it, but starting around the 5 minute point is a walking tour of the IL Regional meet a couple of weeks ago. Most/all the members were off eating so not many people hanging around but shows the good turn out of vehicles.
