2008 F450 hub swap?

I own the above vehicle which I believe came with the stout Dana S110 rear axle. I've replaced the oem 19.5 inch 10-lug wheels with 22.5 inch Alcoa wheels. I've used an adaptor to accomodate the change in bolt pattern. The wheels stick out further than I'd like from the dually fenders so here's my question: is it possible to replace the hub assembly on this axle with one that has lugs that fit the 22.5 inch wheels without an adaptor. I know nothing about the mechanics of doing this so is it possible? As many things are possible, would it be economical? Thanks for the advice.

It is an interesting question as I would also be interested in knowing. To my knowledge I can not think of any vehicle that runs the big 10 pattern on a Dana 110 so it will likely not be easy to find one if at all.

As crazy as it sounds, but maybe swapping the rear end would be easier? How about an F-650 rear end swap?

Anyone know if the dimensions would actually allow this to work? New adapters are $1400, and some would pay more to not have to use adapters.
