If you look on the lincoln forum there is talk of the 1958 wheel being grey or black. Some people say the 1959s had grey wheels that match plasti-kote's dove grey paint. The pic I attached shows 1958s leaving the factory and the wheels are black. I would say they are semi-gloss but it's hard to tell. Probably also the same as whatever the 1958 T-birds used since they were built along-side each other.

An original rim, looks to have been weathered.
