I've used a hand impact drive tool (one hits that with a hammer) and a #3 Phillips bit for these.

When I did my doors I figured there had to be something better than a phillips head for the hinge so I went to my local fastener shop and I found the same screw only with a hex head. In the 8 years that they have been on and a few adjustments, I've never had a problem.

Are they just counter sunk screws or is there another official name for them?

I'm replacing my hinges soon.

Thanks, but when you drill out the rivets in the door to replace the hinges you need to replace the rivets with longer screws and put nuts on the end.

Plus I like the idea of stainless allen head screws.

M8-1.25 SS Socket Head Cap Screw, Flat Head Similar to this
https://www.grainger.com/product/FOREVERBOLT-M8-1-25-x-25mm-36RJ83

Planned to do this as well. Would think 20mm to replace originals, and 30mm with nut/washer to replace factory rivets.

Just to follow up. The 8x1.25 worked for bolting the hinge to the body, but they were too large to bolt the hinge to the door. I took the hinge to the hardware store and even 7mm was too large a dia. So I ended up using 1/4-20 bolts and nuts. Mounted them yesterday.
