Need to know what size tap for a standard hard drive screw

I bought a dozen 3.5" hard drive carriers for mounting 2.5" drives in. The holes are to small for standard screws and are punched instead of threaded. Theses holes are for the iMac pins not to hold the hard drive to the bracket. I need to get a screw tap to thread them. Anyone know what size a standard hard drive screw is or where to get what I need?

UPDATE

It's a T8, but what type and size threads?

You are talking about the Hard Drive Brackets to go in an iMac to replace the 3.5 with a 2.5? Not the Hard Drive screw itself but the one to hold the Drive in the Bracket correct?
