After a good truing and tensioning, the wheels are very solid, since they're Formula hubs and butted spokes. The cog and lockring, however, should be replaced immediately. Like Hockeyteeth said, the lockring strips and even breaks very easily and the cog probably isn't much better. When my LBS mechanic took the lockring off, it cracked and a piece broke off (it was the service manager at a shop that services a lot of fixed gears, so it wasn't his fault).
