Doing some lite maintenance recently I noticed my rear wheel had noticeable play when installed - should there be any play or should it be tight? The discussion I usually found was for what I think's called axial play (left/right movement along the axle); mine does not seem to move axially, but it does wiggle with what I'm thinking's called radial play (like an airplane banking to turn).

I'm not sure how to measure play but if there's a spec please also explain how to measure it.
