Yes I would tighten them up as the final drive will be moving around on you. And to get the axle rod to line up the right way. And its easier to get to the nuts with out the tire in the way.

I don't recall if this is specified in the manual or not. But misalignment of the final drive is a problem. I put the final drive on, snug the nuts up, then install the wheel and axle, and torque the axle nut to spec. I then slightly loosen the final drive nuts before torquing them to spec.
