    Probably, or any hardware store.

    If you can get access to the rear of the rivet, just push the centre pin out and remove the rivet.

    If you can't, then (depending on size) drill a small hole in the pin, screw in a small screw and pull the pin out with pliers.

    You can just push the centre pin right into the 'rivet' and that will let you get them out. The centre-pin will just fall into the void behind. I'm not familiar with where the mudflaps actually attach to, so the pin will either be retrievable and so the rivet can be reused, or it will just fall into the void and remain there, or fall out whilst driving. Vx sell replacements and are fairly cheap.
