No weight. I dont think you will hurt them 33's even with weight. Your running a non sticky, right? If if it was a sticky its fine, which I dont think they make that small.

I've done plenty of bad things with my locked D30 on 35's. Had a front tire bound up in an undercut and still powered through it and climbed up. All sorts of full throttle spinning turning lock to lock.

Only issue I ever had was when I had a unit bearing going bad. It was loose enough to cause the orange boot to hit the 3 bearing bolts and tear up the edge. No damage to the joint, just replaced the boot.
