They are M5 thread diameter X 12mm thread length. 16mm length will fit fine if 12mm is scarce. They will take a 4mm driver.
You'll also want a flat washer and a lock washer for each screw. Use a wee bit 'o Loctite.
You'll find these screws at most real hardware stores (Ace, Do it Best, etc.). You will not find them at Home Despot, bLowes, or Meanturds.
The long t-handle ball-end 4mm hex driver may be a little tougher to find -- I've found them locally at a Do it Best hardware store and at a local race shop. You might also check a hobby shop -- small metric hex fasteners are common on radio-controlled vehicles.
