Rubberizing Steel Plates

Has anyone tried applying a rubber coating to steel plates? I have an olympic set of steel plates but the clanging and rattling drives me, and anyone else who happens to be in the house, nuts. I was hoping that someone would have a suggestion for some kind of spray on rubber coating that would help to dampen the sound.

If you just want to do it for the sound, go to a craft store and buy some thick felt. Superglue the stuff on the sides, and you're golden. How long it'll last I dunno, but it sounds like a good idea to me.
