Wheel Play?

I jack up my 2012 touring 850 with 26x11x14 rear grim reapers and wiggle them with both hands.
1/4 inch or less of play on both tires.
I take them off and what’s wiggly is the hangers that the cv joints go into. I guess they’re just that way to have a little play in them? The axle nuts are tight and cotter pins are in, so what is it?
