You can have a cut-off installed in most vehicles that will allow for flat towing. However, 55mph is a recognized upper limit for safe flat-towing in most things. My tow dolly I used to haul junk cars with recommended no faster than 45 MPH, and it was originally a U-Haul unit intended for towing wheels-up.
