Question

Hi Woody, I'm a bit new to the spoked wheel world so when I went to change the tires on my DRZ and noticed two dead spokes on the rear I took them to a local professional. He tried turning a few of the spoke nipples and when they wouldn't budge he said the wheels would need to be entirely relaced with new spokes, but that they were good enough for riding off road with for now. Is there a penetrant I could use that would loosten up the spokes so the wheels can be trued up as is? Can I really ride off road with wheels that have just a couple of dead spokes? Just trying to figure it all out. Thanks,
Thad
