Bearings are easy to replace or repack with grease. A blowout probably isn't caused by a bearing issue, but a puncture or overheating.

You can buy larger diameter wheels to reduce the revolutions, or buy higher speed rated tires to pull at faster speeds. Finally, keep the tires aired up and the loads reasonable, and you should be able to pull at any reasonably safe speed.
