At low speeds, the behaviour may just be to roll on the shaft IF the tension is just right.

Even so, with such large clearance, the behaviour of the pulley wheel will be unpredictable. Hopping, flopping side to side, etc may happen depending on the dynamic load fluctuations.

Better to just put in a 1x2 bushing imho....
