27.5 DVO Onyx SC to 26" Hope Pro 2 Hub - Can it be done?

I bought a used 26" wheelset with a Hope Pro 2 (20x110mm) front hub and spacing. I've never owned a Hope wheelset/hub. I am curious if it could be mounted to a DVO Onyx SC 27.5 (15x110 TA Boost) 180mm fork? A 20mm to 15mm adapter should handle the axle conversion but what about the rotor spacing?

Reason: I currently have a mix batch of components and would like to mount this set up to my veteran 26" DH rig. It has a rare 26" rear wheel with 165mm hub. A mullet or full on 650b conversion is an option for the bike as the frame has an adjustable rear but that's the long road. If the DVO fork and 26" wheel can play nice together then I am happy just the same staying at 26" on both ends.

Any insight is helpful!

Anyone know if a Hope Pro 2 hub @20x110 can be converted to fit a 27.5 15x110 Boost fork?

They make rotor shims that usually come with the hub adaptors.

I've got Hope Pro 4 Boost hubs on a 27.5" Fortus wheelset. The front on mine is set up for (15x110) but it also came supplied with 20mm end cap adaptors.

The 20mm adaptors fit flush onto the end of the axles and have the same internal diameter as the axle itself. They're fitted using circlips to keep them from falling off.

The 15mm end caps are inserted into the axle which keeps them in and reduces the axle diameter to 15mm at the same time.

When converted the rotor will be in the same position as your hub shell is Boost spaced anyway and not effected by this particular end cap conversion.

3mm rotor shims are only necessary to convert non Boost hubs (x100) into Boost (x110).
