Along with an assortment of ALUMINUM rivets, I find the hardware store (at least some of them) has a good selection of sizes, big box stores don't have much. Maybe a few washers that match the rivet sizes, may allow one to use a washer if a rivet pulls out leaving an oversized hole.

If you use a washer, either use an alum. washer or stainless steel washer. Steel washers against the alum. doesn't work and the alum. rivet will get eaten away, or weaken the alum rivet to the point of early failure.

Good call on an important point I forgot to mention.
