Why on earth would you want to pump 2.0" tyres to 100psi? Unless you are running a cargo bike with humungus loads, it it utterly pointless.

Truly, you run a serious risk of damaging your rims.

Big jumps and certain flatland and ramp tricks (particularly if mistimed) tend to flatspot BMX rims.

St John Street cycles have a good range of tyres in the 20"/406 size. Some of them are designed for the higher pressures.
