Default avid bearings

great company no doubt. I just bought 20 wheel bearings, but didn't realize that they were revolutions. It has rubber shielding on one side and metal shielding on the other.

I am sure they will be fine. But did i make a mistake? I will put the rubber side facing towards the car.

Rubber is what you want, helps keeps the dirt out.

+ 1 on the Revolutions.

Amazing bearings. I use them all around except the clutch on my Losi (TKO Ceramics in the Clutch).

The 1/2 x 3/4 that Losi uses on the Inner Hubs always blows out!! I won't even mention the 8x14's on the outer Hub.

I switched to the Revolutions mainly because the Losi Bearings were like $12 for 2, but now I'm convinced as I just did my 1st Gallon Bearing change on the Revolutions and the 1/2 x 3/4 were just like new. No grit or slop in the bearing!! And all I do is clean the car (simple green) and use compressed air I never open or re-oil the bearings. Thats bad ass for $1 in my book.
