wheel arch liners plastic rivets

Hi guys, I need to replace some missing wheel arch liners rivets, I got this tool from amazon :

http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FPlastic-Rivet-Setter-40-Rivets%2Fdp%2FB003PF7140%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fs%3Dautomotive%26ie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1308586603%26sr%3D1-1&tag=5336116685-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325
It has 10 packs from different sizes, but I want to know the correct size for the jeep commander, is it the 6.6 mm or the 6.3 mm?, I have no Idea how to measure them on my jeep.

Thanks a lot

According to the parts catalog I have for the XK, they refer to those rivets with the numbers 6.3 and 6.25. Mopar part numbers are 34201621 and 06500911. Looks like one attaches the liner to the wall, the other attaches the liner to the arch part. I'd assume these are mm measurements and that 6.3 is close enough for both.

If you google search the part numbers, you often find a fastener speciality shop on the internet carrying the fasterners in packs of tens or twenty's for like $9.

That's the one fromNAPA. $8.00 plus for one rivet from the dealer, at least that what I paid in 07.

I'll keep that in mind next time. I just replaced my leaking exhaust manifold and bought the rivets from the dealer ($4 ea) and discovered my rivet gun wasn't big enough. I ended up pulling with vice grips and pushing with a screw driver, it worked, but obviously not ideal.
