    If I were you I'd look at getting it helicoiled, either buy a kit and do it yourself or get an engineering firm to do it for you. The strength of threadlock is nowhere near the metal that should be there !

    Not cross threaded (not any more) that stripped the thread, some threadlock will be fine, helicoiling I wouldn't bother with unless your running big (200mm plus) discs or riding Downhill.

    You can run a car safely if you have to on 3/4 4/5 wheelnuts i'd say you should be safe with the one loose on.

    Be absolutely fine with only 5.
