Compatability - Ultegra 9 speed/10 speed crankset

I currently have a 10 speed Ultegra setup on my road bike. Is it possible to make a Shimano Ultegra 6500 Crankset compatible with a ten speed system by upgrading with 10 speed chain rings (53/39)?

The Shimano 6500 crankset is originally compatible with Octalink bottom brackets and 9 speed drive trains.

Thanks for your help.

Steve

Bikes: '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

Try your crank with the current chainrings first. The difference between 9 and 10-speed cranks is very small.
