Question possible to turn new odometer forward

In order for a Canadian Mercedes to be brought into the US, it is required for the instrument cluster to read miles instead of kilometers...unfortunately, Canadian Mercedes have a speedometer that only reads kilometers, so if one wanted to import a Canadian Mercedes in the US, one needs a brand new instrument cluster...if I purchased a brand new "miles" instrument cluster from the dealership, can the odometer be turned forward to read the corresponding miles as what it originally read on my original odometer in kilometers? I would rather it read the correct mileage instead of being reset back to zero miles. I would actually much rather keep the car with the original instrument cluster, but I am sure that I will most likely run into problems with customs, insurance, or the DMV in the states...thank you...
