Designed using state-of-the art technology, Body-Solid Rubber Grip Olympic Plates surpasses all others in quality, accuracy, reliability and price.
Quad-grip design guarantees safer and easier performance than any other plate on the market. Encased in durable, heavy-duty rubber to prevent scuffing or damage to equipment, walls or floors. Impact-resistant, these Olympic Plates will not split, crack or peel. They are also impervious to rusting, chipping, flaking or losing their color. And the integrated metal sleeve provides a smooth, secure fit onto any Olympic bar. Heavy lifting has never been easier or safer.
These weights are designed great, easy to handle and won't scratch floors. The only issue I have after one month is the rubber like smell. I have put outside for days, washed in different soaps and have the windows open inside now. These weights still smell. I imagine the smell will subside I just don't know how long.

Been using these plates for a week now and I love them. I highly recommend purchasing these or the higher sets.
-Reduced noise while working out
-Extremely easy to pick up/put down with grip
-Urethane encased so they will never get rusty
-Slide perfectly on olympic bar
-Emits rubber smell
I read reviews about them smelling bad (off other sites) so I left them outside just for a couple days and they didn't make my indoor homegym smell bad at all. Some say it may take a week or two for the smell to go away, but that wasn't the case for me.
