I have run 35mm randonneur tyres (Vittoria) or even 37mm hybrid tyres (continental double fighter) on Open Pro rims without any problems. Some people even run 29er MTB tyres on road rims.
If there is a risk, I don't believe it is at the rim level, usually wider tyres run lower pressure and stress the rim less. Extreme low pressures can lead to the bead not staying on the rim hook in the corners but I think if you stay at reasonable pressures, it should be no problems.
