These plates have heavy rubber coating and personally, that is 'a must have' today for both home and commercial gyms. It will prevent plates from rusting and decrease the possibility of scuffing, chipping or damaging the plates or rest of equipment or floors.
Of course, be sure to have proper racks and floor matting.
As usual, these plates often comes with grease and quite smelly. Clean them thoroughly with some mild cleaning soap or something similar to remove the grease and smell will be gone rather soon, even if you have home gym in basement.
Long story short - plates are well balanced with good rubber protection. They are easily put on and off the bar - handling is very easy. There are cheaper weight plates on the market, but these plates are great investment in the long run.
