You should have seen them turning. Ben Hur? Maybe Mad Max. It was pretty intimidating.

Yes they are. I've seen them on innies like that front wheel, but never on outies like that drive wheel. Pretty sure that's illegal.

Technically, not on a drive wheel, that was the tag axle. It was deployed since the dumptruck was full. Over some stretches that thing was really bouncing!

A tag axle, or a pusher axle?

A pusher axle is like a tag axle.

But I think what you're talking about is a lift axle.

A pusher axle is the rear drive axle. A Tag axle is the (normally) unpowered axle. A drop axle is one that is only deployed when the weight conditions warrant an extra axle. Tractors that routinely haul nose-heavy loads use them but they are not standard equipment on tractors.

Those spiky things are legal all over the US, as they are only covers for the lug nuts, They are made of plastic or very thin aluminum. I have accidentally dented them with my thumb. I cannot speak for other countries tho.

I can see it as a tow bar, but would that thing really work in a roll-over ?

Assuming you mean the 'handle', I doubt it.
