I have seen someone do that to the normal 20’ wheels. But can’t remember where I saw the pics!!! I think it was plastic dip tho!

Might be safest if you want to remove it easily, but dipped wheels start looking ratty pretty quickly.

If you're doing this, then just get them powder coated. No point mucking about with Plastidip. Wheels are subject to a lot of abuse, heat, water, and corrosive elements, such as road salt, brake dust and detergents.

If you choose plastidip, you can use the Glossifier to add a glossy, polished look.
