you don't notice it in the store, but the rubber stinks bad once you take them home to a smaller confined area. they smell like a smoky barbeque! I left them outside for a week. then I washed them daily with soap. the smell never went away. So I returned them. I have come to found out that urethane does not smell like rubber; however, urethane coated weights cost 3x more.
My main reason for rubber was so they don't scratch the wood floor, but instead I bought the metal dumbbells and put a foam pad on the floor when using them.
