Might be worthwile also replacing your dust caps & check the bore for any burrs.

Hi again Pajs...ero
I was assuming that you had the standard seals in my last post which it pays not to do.
My hub is like yours and the rubber seal sits a few mm away from the flange and the problem is ensuring it doesn't push away when fitting the hub or in service.
I mentioned using Sikaflex to fix the seal in place. I overcame this by after fitting the bearing and stainless cup in place in the hub, measuring accurately from the bearing inner race to the outer face of the stainless cup. Then place the rubber seal on the spindle and adjust it to measure the same distance from the bearing shoulder to where the stainless cup will run on the seal. Allow the Sikaflex to dry before fitting the wheel.
Alternatively a tube spacer could be used to fill the gap between the rubber seal and spindle to stop it moving away. Also when I have the dust caps off I put silicone around the lip to prevent eater or dust entering via the cap.
To those mentioning bearing failures, this problem is not because of bearing failure initially but water entering the hub to cause the failure.
