    Wrapping wheels is possible, though really does not stand up too well to heat, rock chips, etc. Get them powder coated or painted. The only problem with powder coating is that it can weaken the wheel if heated to a too high temperature (just find a reputable shop to avoid this). Or, if you are looking for a matte/semi-gloss finish, you can easily plastidip them (then a coat or two of glossifier for a semi-gloss look.

    Never heard of anyone wrapping their wheels, it's just not feasible
    The wrap will get torn up quick
