Do these pedals face a certain side up?

Are the pedals weighted at all to face a certain way up?
The pedals hang vertically with the cleats facing to the rear. With cleated shoes you push fthe pedal top forward to engage. With plain soles pull the tops back to get the flat side. Easy as riding a bike after a while!

Platform side cleat question.

Is the platform side of these pedals large enough to accomodate the cleats on the bottom of my shoes ? I want to be able to use the spd side to cycle on the road to the hills then swop sides so I can easily get on and off the pedals doing some downhill riding.
The cleats in my fairly old Specialized Tahoe shoes slide on the metal central area of the pedal on the non-cleat side. Newer shoes will have the cleats buried deeper in the tread and there shouldn't be any contact between cleat and pedal.

Installation ?

First time replacing pedals: will I need to also buy a pedal wrench to fit these to my bike?
A 15mm spanner worked fine for me.

Welke schoenen adviseert u voor gebruik met de Shimano PD-T780 XT

They work well with my Specialized Tahoe shoes.
