Those aren't sidewalls...those are colored V rims and road bike type tires.
27"/700c or similar, not cruiser or MTB/BMX.
If you remove the spokes and nipples you can do it yourself but you can't paint/coat the nipples and spokes put together or the wheel will be stiff and cannot flex properly and will fail from the stress. I wouldn't paint anyway.
The rims or entire wheels as far as I know can also be purchased in various colors if you know where to look.
Yes, the tire is that small. It's a different beast from a balloon tire.
