Aksium rear hub has play, how to remedy?

I've got about 4500 miles on this wheel, the hub is showing a tiny amount of wobble. Do I just tighten the nuts on the outsides of the hub? Anybody have a link showing some diagrams on how to maintain this?

Thanks all.

Thanks IGH. I found that after I posted. How do you like those incredibly detailed instructions? I guess its better than too much detail?

They weren't much. Did you receive the wrench with the wheels? Looks like they're saying to get rid of the play.
