Super single's for rear dually?

So im thinking of doing the super singles on the rear of my dually...has anyone done this yet? anyone on here with pics? how much of a lift do i need? I have a 4 inch lift already with 285's it sits pretty high...anyways im really interested in doing it. any thoughts? I thought the Pros would be a tire that would last long than the truck LOL? what are the cons? besides the price? thanks let me know if you have any advice..

Super singles on the rear looks really good with the right rim choice, but on the front is crazy. maybe your thinking of floats, which imo look good all the way around

I bet that thing rides like a pile of $#!T, I never understood the 22.5 & 24.5 conversions to pickups, you spend thousands of dollars to make the truck look "cool" and ride horrible.

Hundreds of lbs of unsprung weight, 14-18 ply sidewalls, stiffer tread compound....

I'm not getting into a pissin match over it, but the fact of the matter is adding unsprung weight, stiffer tires, and less sideway deflection decreases ride quality.
Same reason your truck rides stiffer with 20's and 35's than it did on 16's and 35's.
