Which Kool Stop pads for 16" wheels (and Tektro V brakes)?

I want to replace the tektro pads on my R&M Frog with Kool Stop salmons but I don't know which pads will fit best. I've done several searches, but people don't usually specify which pads they use. The Continentals look like the right size pads, but the bolts look too short for the V brakes. The Supra 2s look like they have the right bolts and hardware, but may be too long for the small diameter rims. The Vans look like they would work, but they don't come in salmon.

try the thinline v pads.
if the long tail of the V brake pads don't fit the smaller diameter rim, well ,
cut off some of the tail length of the shoes
