Rohn bolts for 25 are fine threaded and are grade 5.  However, they usually 
turn to rust in a short period of time.

My advice for guys putting up short tower (40-50) is to pick up galvanized 
bolts at the local hardware store.

I'm no engineer, but the downward force of 200 lb. of tower and some guy 
tension is not going to shear the bolts.  I've seen a fair amount collapsed tower 
and have never seen any bolt shear.
