Default is it possible to turn a dually into a super single?

Hello forum, i'm looking into purchasing a 2015 sprinter 3500 with 6 wheels to convert it to a 4 wheel vehicle, i was curious to know if i could just buy 2 super single rims and just throw them onto the van? on this website, they say it wont fit the dually rear wheels.

The rear axle on a dually are different than Super Single (SuSi) with different adapters on the ends. The dually rears are held on by nuts fastened to studs on the axle adapter. The SuSi wheel is designed to be used with cone-seat bolts that thread into the SuSi rear axle adapter. Also the offsets of the SuSi wheel might also be a problem.

SuSi conversions have been discussed in various forms over the years on this forum. Here are a few threads that might give you more info on the issues involved....
