What size rivets for sliding side windows?

I'm installing new rear sliding windows and don't see a rivet size in the instructions. Can anyone help?

Looks like they are part # RU610313L which RN sells for $1.38 a rivet. Seeing as I need 48 of these, hoping there is another alternative to spending $66.

Found these on Amazon for $6, and wondering if they would work?

I used regular rivets from some generic big box location from memory ...

AYFKM? Order up McMaster part #97524A034 Sealing Blind Rivet, Domed, Aluminum, 3/16" Diameter, .188"-.25" Material Thickness $15.76 pack of 100

You'll use these throughout the vehicle for everything. I may be wrong, but I don't think there are any 5/32 rivets used. Although, on a Series roof to frame joint there are about 200-odd semi tubular 5/32 steel ones.

Thanks Bill! I just went to McMaster's website and part #97524A034 shows as .126"-.25" instead of .188"-.25", will these still work?
