The size bolts that come with the hitch part # 13354 are M14 - 1.5 x 35 HEX and M14 - 1.5 x 40 HEX.

That means the tap size you would need is M14 - 1.5. I also attached a help article that covers how to clean weld nuts for when installing a hitch like what you are doing.

We do not have thread taps available. You'll just want to visit a local hardware store and they should have this. 67552
