What was that failure? What was the symptom or problem with the original bearing and with the replacement?
Wheel bearings live in an environment full of rain water and dust from dirt roads, and they're built to survive those conditions. There is a rubber seal behind the bearing that keeps out water and dirt. It's common to install a new seal with a new bearing but if that isn't done, you just have to be sure it's in the proper location to do its job effectively.
