I have an olympic set that's about 15 years old and I'm trying to acquire a few more 45 lbs. deep dish style plates by York. I've scoured the classifieds on-line and off with no luck.

They look like these:

Why get York?

You should be able to pick up some random 45 lb olympic plates from lots of sources.

I would look local because shipping will be a pain if you order something.

If he's anything like me, he grew up using the old-school York plates and hates the new rubber-coated crap they're putting out now. Plus, whenever I load up a bar all the plates HAVE to match. Just a weird habit I've picked up over the years.

Amen to that!

Also, when you get into the heavier plates, the majority of the new Chinese stuff is usually off by several pounds. (Unless you want to pay around $1.00 a pound for a professional grade.)
