it has a 305 rim ( for something like a 16 x 2.00 tire or thinner tire like a 20 x 1.5 )
OLD ( over locknut dimension is 132 mm ) will fit 130 mm frame spacing

No ... not even close. Brompton dropout spacing is something in the ballpark of 112-116 mm. Maybe 120.

And I suspect the brakes will have trouble with the smaller rim, too.
