I don't trust spoke nuts enough to try it.

There is no guarantee it would have worked but the replacement wheels were a 100% way to eliminate the problem. I also like the style of the mag wheels better than spokes. The ebay seller claims they are lighter than steel spoke wheels but even if they are not, a pound or two difference is inconsequential because I use my bike for transportation. I do not compete in bike races. While I know of no destructive strength tests to make a comparison, I think the claim mag wheels are stronger is credible. Either way, like spoke wheels they are more than strong enough. Another virtue is I never have to suffer the tedium it inflicts to true up the spokes,
