The best method for wheel bearing adjustment is to tighten them very tight to seat everything properly, and then while spinning the wheel, back off the tension just a little. Push on the top of the tire to try to wiggle the wheel assembly to try to feel just a slight bump indicating just a little play in the bearings. Continue releasing tension just until you feel this small bump when wiggling the top of the wheel. Then lock the wheel bearing nut at its closest possible position. It is important to have the small amount of play in the bearings to allow space for a film of lubrication, and to allow for expansion when the bearings warm up.
