Have noticed as my savage is on my stand & off the ground, when I hold wheels they all move slightly from side to side when you grab hold of each of them in turn to test for movement. All fixings are tight could it be wear on hub bearings as can’t ever remember replacing these?
Many Thanks.

Could be the bearings or just wear on the hubs. Mine flop around a bit as well and on the rear I have integy axle carriers that remove the turnbuckle to reduce slop and things to wear out/break.

After stripping down hub carriers replacing with newer ones & replacement of all bearings, have come to the conclusion even though movement is less that the play is in the 17mm moulding on wheels which must be slightly worn. Will confirm this when I get my new phaltline tyres & HPI Tremor wheels! 👍🏻
