Just replaced rear hub bearings and I have torqued then to the correct settings and I can not move the hubs, should they be like this.

I would only use timken (or other top brand) bearings, I used mini spares in my fully rebuilt mini and after about 500 miles the bearing seized up doing 60mph down the dual carriage way. I had to replace the newly reconditioned radius arm and hub, bearing and tyre.

Send it back to minispares.
