I'm going to install aluminum stair edging on the wood treads of the stairs that go down to our unfinished basement. They come with 1-1/4" metal screw nails (like the ones at http://www.homedepot.com/p/MD-Build...-4-in-Floor-Metal-Screw-Nails-21478/202066473). Before hammering the screw nails in, should I drill pilot holes for them? If yes, I can't find what gauge these screw nails are so I'm not sure what size bit I should use. Thanks for any guidance.
