Best to drill them out. Get a drill bit just a little bit bigger then the hole in the rivet. Drill it without applying a lot of pressure. Usually the cap part needs to be pull off the drill. it will be hot/warm to the touch. needle nose pliers will help you get it off the bit. not a hard thing to do at all,

+1 I did mine a few years ago for the same reason. I didn't have any problems getting them out by drilling them.

ive drilled them... still no go....Ive broke at least 6 bits ...two brand new titanium ones...the holes just seem to get larger because they are in so tight they strip out.
