i started out with the cheapo "house autozone hub" my 4th hub was the best i can buy from autozone

i am running maximum offset rims with 31x10.50 r15s

the only thing i can think is left is something wrong with my CV axel with the nut fully tightened on the hub there is maybe 1/4 of play in the hub assembly

just looking for advice or if anyone else has had the same problem everyone just tries blaming my tires when before this i had a 94 running 33x14.50 on maximum offset 12 inch rims with 1 inch wheel spacers and never broke a hub in my life i had the truck for 500k miles
There should be no play in the axle. The axle is what holds the hub together so it should be tight. Most hubs are made in China now so theres the first problem. Try to find a better brand somewhere else. Find out why the axle is not tightening up correctly.
