Head to your nearest LBS, and have them look for replacements for you. There are a myriad of cones. Make sure cups are good, or it will be a waste of time.
+ new bearings and grease are a must.
The older S12S came with 27 inch rims, and steel spokes. Cones are cheap, so as long as the spokes are decent, I would replace them. But I would not put a lot of money into those wheels. If you reach that point, just find some nicer used wheels with stainless spokes. I see them for sale all the time around here.
