Unless they are really bad, a high quality bolt, and any kind of light lubricant, including WD-40 should work fine. Soak the bolt and hole, get it started in the threads, then turn it back and forth, turning it just a little more each time. Use 8.8 or better bolts. Hardware store bolts will get chewed up, and in turn chew up the threads on the bike.
