Alright, so on my last little ride, I noticed my hub (khe astern coaster) has a pretty decent amount of side play... The hub and everything is tight. What could it be? I dont think the bearings are bad because they still seem pretty smooth... Could it be that the places where the hubshell bearings sit? Im not sure whats going on :/ please help!

The whole hub or just the driver? Which has sideways play?

The whole hub.... I took it apart last week to check/regrease everything. It eas all good, I put it all back just the way it came apart, it was perfect, no issues and today it was all wobbly and shit.

So it went together and rode fine? Then all of a sudden it has wobble? This is the first I've heard of that. I'm actually stumped for once

I'm pretty sure one of ur bearings is shot. Most likely the drive side. I'm dealing with the exact same thing on my rush coaster that I rebuilt but used the old bearings since they still spun ok. After I noticed the wobble when I put it on I took it apart again and opened the seals on the bearings to find that the big one was completely rusted. Small one was ok but I repacked them and put the wheel back on. No more wobble until I got on the bike and rolled around on it. The fresh grease leaked right out of the drive side bearing. So I ordered both bearings and will have them Friday. Hopefully I have no issues then and hopefully this will work for u too

I assume you mean jam nuts, because cone nuts are for unsealed hubs, and the driveside is the only one I use, and yes its tight. And I replaced the other with a hubguard.

I did it to my coaster to see if it would get louder.

I know for a fact its not the lock nuts since I'm dealing with the same thing and tightening them as far as they can go does nothing. If u have taken the bearings out and thoroughly inspected them and they are tight, then the only thing I can think of is let a shop look at it
