With tapered roller bearings, there should be ZERO freeplay..... the normal process is to tighten the the nut up, turn the wheel a few times then LOOSEN the nut to about 'finger tight' and cotter pin it there. No slop, no wiggle. Even 1/8" is fine for wooden carriage wheels but waaay too much for tapered rollers.

You may have axle and/or bearing issues.
