Kits were widely available 20 or so years ago that used a "collar-spacer" which slipped inside the stock rim and then allowed another rim and tire to be mounted on the outside. The dual rim was secured to the original by means of "J-bolts" and turnbuckles which hooked into eye-bolts that replaced some of the mounting nuts at the end of the wheel spokes.

These things worked great, but had two major flaws: An M has a 6-spoke wheel, a Super M has an 8-spoke wheel. The M wheel castings have been known to break under extreme use. We snapped a left rear axle on a Super M with this setup when using a dual on only the left side when plowing. Worked fine until all the weight was supported by the dual. If you use it for disking and other tillage with all the wheels on the ground, you'll like it.

In this case, make sure you check the j-bolts frequently, especially for the first few hours as the collar works its way in place. When I was a kid I watched a dual roll off on its merry way when a couple of these bolts loosened up. Didn't hurt anything, but picking it up and putting it back on was a lot of work.

The wheels on our Super M Diesel were dished in
so we just added another set dished out.
Works Great.

My M's duals are simply two wheels mounted "dish in" on each axle. They work great.

I've also seen them set up for snap-on duals - easier to mount/dismount the outer tires, but doesn't add as much weight.

Kurt, One easy way is to push the original wheels in as far as possible and slip another wheel onto the axle with the original. Adds a lot more weight too.

There should be 9 bolt hubs around. Same axle as 560. Or band type duals would work. Take nuts off wedge clamps on main wheels and replace with nuts with ring on them.

I didn't do too good of a job explaining that!
