That makes no sense. If a tires is free spinning that is causing almost no stress. It would be like if you had the tires jacked off the ground. The reason a locker can cause more stress is that when both tires start spinning then all of a sudden one grabs a bite, that one shaft takes the force of both tires stopping. If its unlocked and one tire grabs just that tire stops and all the power transfers to the other tire.
