Rear tub spreader plate material

I want to add some spreader plates to support the weight of the forward facing seats in my tub. Would these need to be stainless steel to avoid risk of oxidisation? How thick should the plates be? The puma's plates beneath the arch look slim maybe just 1mm.

I would go with Aluminium or galvanized steel.

Stay away from stainless for this application

Thanks Dave. So the reason stainless is better for fasteners is because it's less corrosive than regular steel but it's still not great.
