Well, I didn't figure there was much of a way I could tell why a wheel bearing failed, until I read your signature. Large changes in unsprung weight and road forces beyond manufacturer design sound like the problem here. In other words you have at least too much tire on the car.
So what you are suggesting is not to go as big of an upgrade as a 17" wheel. It could possibly ruin your wheel bearings? Please elaborate..
