When I tighten them, I keep tightening until I feel resistance while spinning the spindle then back off slightly. Then I take a rubber mallet and whack it a few times to make sure the bearings are seated. Then I retighten until I feel resistance and back off again slightly until the resistance is gone. Lock her down and bend the tab. Recheck. You don't want any resistance or you will burn up the bearing prematurely.
