1.9 beadlock aluminum I believe. I need to find a few screws for them and they don't match anything I have.

not sure who makes the rims. they kinda look like something gear head would have made.
the screws should be a m2 or m3 socket head . you would have to match the length.

Yea, I don't know who made them, but I gotta agree with Rusted, either M2 or M3 and match the length

The screws have a very course thread not like a normal metric or standard thread that was where the problem came in. I guess I could just re-tap them. Screws are also not stainless they appear to be some other metal that has been chromed.

Yes you could re-tap but use caution i'm not sure about the thickness of the screw holes. if you have enough material then go for it. you wouldn't want to crack a hole after you do all that work.
Have you tried going to a hardware store and asking for help. most have a tool to check size and thread pitch.
i would look for a direct replacement before drilling. if you can post a pic of the screw. i would like to see it.

I guess I should have taken more than 2 screws out.. It would appear that they are button head m3x10 the 2 I took out were just very poorly molded tapped or what ever process they use to put threads on screws the rest have normal metric thread but the heads are smaller diameter than all the stainless hardware i have.

sounds like someone lost some and used what ever they had. i just thinking that there might be some damage to the threads from the different screws used.

You can't order screws directly from the wheels or rims where you buy?
Just ask seller.
