license plate screws

I feel silly asking this but in my searches on this forum and net couldn't find answer. I saw a lot of people said they just screwed the plate to the bumper or used 2 sided tape but my 2016 ED I just bought looks looks like it has regular threads going in to both front and rear where the plate goes. Just not sure which size screws to buy. Thanks in advance.

Not sure, I just used whatever screws I had laying around my toolbox that I could get threaded into the license plate bracket.

Size doesn't really matter, length is what really matters. Any license plate screws from an auto parts store will work.

Ok. It looked like it was threaded to take a bolt rather than a screw. That's what I will get. I know. I am anal about everything with my new car and want to do everything right.
