Sound Change With Labialized Consonant Codas

I thought of something today, and wanted to see if it actually
existed in natural languages.

Has there ever been a case where labialized consonant codas
produced front rounded vowels?  Something like the following:

i > y / _C_w


*kik_we > kyk_we
*mek_wt_wa > m2k_wt_wa

It feels like a natural change to me, but I've never run across an
instance of it.
