Are my truck and trailer Aluminum wheels CSA approved?

CSA International (Canadian Standards Association), a member of the CSA Group, is a provider of product testing and certification services for electrical, mechanical, plumbing, gas and a variety of other products. They do not test or approve wheels or tires for highway vehicles.
Wheels and tires are covered under the jurisdiction of Department of Transportation (DOT). All wheels that are imported into Canada have this validation. DOT covers all of North America. The standards are the same for Canada, US and Mexico for all tire and wheel configurations used on highways.
There are wheels and tires that are designed for off road use and they are not required to have DOT approvals. That simply means that while they are not required to have DOT approval, in many cases, a DOT approved wheel or tire is best suited for the application. If a tire, for example, is not designed for or capable of being run on roads at highway speed, it must have a stamp that says NHS or Not for Highway Service. For farming applications, tires and wheels are often required to be on roads for short distances, transporting equipment from one location to another. They are capable of handling this scenario, but are not capable of enduring the stress and strain of high speed operation.
So, to answer the question- Are my truck and trailer wheels CSA approved? No.
Are my truck and trailer tires and wheels DOT approved for highway use? Yes.

You have discussed here very important truck or other vehicle related question. The wheels must be approved by the CSA because the standard is important to protect from an accident on road.

test says...

Owning a truck or any other vehicle is a huge responsibility. Being a vehicle owner means that we are able to go to all sorts of places, however, it also means that we need to be careful. The road is not that dangerous, not unless you are driving, let us say, idiotically. There are a lot of things that you should not do while driving. For example, one must not drive while drunk or while in clear use of drugs.
