Take a look at Figure 4-6 (page 4-21 in my version) in AC 43.13
The second row down shows how a correct set should sit on the rivet.

The size of the set should be stamped on the rim of the set.
But, I agree with the others. Looks like an AD3 set on an AD4 rivet.

Thanks for all the replies.

I ordered "another" 1/8" set from Cleaveland and squeezed a bunch of rivets - no more rings. So either what they sent me was a mislabeled 3/32" or there's a defect.

Just eye-balling the two sets, they are almost identical looking.
