With the Revolution series, you run the rubber side towards the outside and the metal towards the inside

I had the same question a month ago. My understanding was the yellow side goes towards the direction the dirt would come from.

That's the best way to explain it. Example: In the hubs, the outer bearing faces the wheel, (dirty side) and the inner bearing faces the diff (also dirty side)

The rubber shield does a better job of protecting the bearing from debris, at the cost of slightly more friction.
