I checked them and they are tight, but I gave the tire a shake and it rocks a bit, like a couple lugs are loose! Both driver side and passenger side rear wheels do the same thing. Is that the wheel bearings, the hubs, something else?
Do you

Hi,

This does sound like the hub bearing. If the studs are tight and the wheel still has movement then you need to check what is called end play. Attached are the instructions.

I would not wait to long to get this handled because if it fails it could cause more damage or even an accident.

Let me know if you have questions. Thanks
