I'm considering ordering this week Paul. I'll probably get a pair of 45's and will let you know. I got a quote on shipping from BFS and even if these are fatter than I'd prefer, I'll save a good amount.

The 10lb plate is about an inch thick, and the 15lb about an inch and a quarter. So a 45 ought to be about 2.75" thick. Empirical verification welcome, since I am getting 25kg plates from Gill instead.

My 45's are in route and I should have them by Tuesday. I'll post up the width.

Just got my 45's from the link provided in the first post. About 3 1/4 inch thick. Solid rubber with brass insert. I'll take a pic if anyone is interested. They look great. Can't wait to try them out!

My Kraiburg bumpers showed up and my expectations of thicker plates turned out to not be true. My 10's and 15's from Kraiburg are a nearly identical to BFS plates of the same size. They also have the same smooth finish and black raised lettering with a brass insert.

I just got my 25's from Scott Tully (York) and matched them up to my Kraiburg 45's. The ONLY difference is one says York and one says Kraiburg (both names are raised rubber). Very happy with both.

Hey Don,

Try these guys... http://www.ozfit.com.au/ up here in Brisbane.

I got bumpers from them a while back for $4/kg. Extremely cheap. Now, I'm not dropping them from height @ the moment, because I've got nothing but the concrete on the garage floor, but they've hit the ground pretty hard a bunch of times, with no obvious damage to bumper or floor.

15kg and above plates are the standard size, but the 10k plates are smaller diameter and thicker.

Oh, the brand is "sportsline" I think. I've never heard of them and haven't been able to find out anything about them, but for the price, I had to give them a go.

I just picked up a set of 25kg and 15kg Kraiburgs from Jesup Gym in Jesup, Iowa. With tax, they ended up being .95/pound.

The 25kg is thicker than anything I've ever seen.

The 15kg (33lbs) Kraiburg is on the left. That's a 45lb Hi-Temp plate in the middle. The 15kg Kraiburg is thicker than the 45! Then you have the massive 25kg Kraiburg on the right. These bumpers are crazy thick!

Here I am trying the Kraiburgs out on my home made thick bar.

The Kraiburgs I received are MUCH thinner than those. I'll take a pic with a regular 45, the kraiburg 45 and the york 25 next to each other to compare.
