Depending on how bad they are you will probably get away with running a tap down the holes and replacing the wheel bolts
I am not sure "Helicoils" would withstand the torque required to hold your wheel on (Approx 120 NM) ??
Failing that i suggest you replace the hub itself but your talking cost then
Precision thread helical inserts were designed as a simple method of repairing stripped or damaged threads in any metal or plastic. It is better than using a tap because you are maintaining the original screw hole diameter as opposed to tapping a larger diameter hole with the same pitch as original thread. 18-8 Stainless Steel for strength and corrosion resistance. Single size repair kits contain a tap, tool and inserts for one thread size.
