A stabilizing chock assembly for a caster wheel or the like, including: a first stabilizing member or piece and a second stabilizing member or piece; and a clamping mechanism coupling the first stabilizing member to the second stabilizing member, the clamping mechanism operable for selectively biasing the first stabilizing member and the second stabilizing member together about a wheel; wherein the first stabilizing member and the second stabilizing member collectively define a conformal recess that is configured to selectively receive and retain a lower portion of the wheel. Optionally, the first stabilizing member and the second stabilizing member each define an arcuate ramp structure that forms a portion of the conformal recess. Optionally, the chock assembly also includes a friction surface disposed on a bottom surface of each of the first stabilizing member and the second stabilizing member.
