I tell you what, those RMS screws aren't cheap but I wonder if just plain old flathead screws and nuts wouldn't be any better? Wouldn't sacrifice any strength that's for sure.
I wouldn't compromise the strength of the frame by drilling any other holes. Did that one time, huge mistake.
Sure Grip has the most narrow heel piece, so either grab a pair of Sure Grips, or go with 3 screws on the current frames.
Those RMS screws hold like cement.
I have used skateboard screws before and had alot of luck with them as well.
I cut and stop pretty hard on my Megas, and never had a problem with the three screws.
About a year and half ago a local hockey shop found a pair of Daoust Gold 555 skates for me in their warehouse. I used them for ice until this past Winter when my g/f got me a pair of Synergy 1300Cs.
Just the other day I decided to turn my Daoust into rollerblades. They have a flat plastic bottom and the base is pretty wide.
So in this case I will probably use all rivets. I generally only use screws if the base of the skate is narrow.
