Standard Aircraft Handbook (every RV builder should own this book) calls for a 1/8" rivet to start with a protrusion of 1.5 times the diameter (0.187) and a shop head heigth of .046" to .078" with a diameter of .172" to .218." Hanson Rivets has a slightly different range on their webpage listed at That said, I would use the 4-6 rivets.
