i've read quite a few posts on here about people getting their wheels nicked with the assumption that because they're bolted on they're safe. so just wondering what some tips and tricks people use to prevent thiefs from making off with the second biggest investment after frame.

That would do it! I lock my rear wheel and frame through the back and then if I'm somewhere that I've deemed unsafe I will pull out a 2nd small lock to go from my front wheel to the frame. Or get and extra long chain of some sort and a heavy duty lock. (messenger style)
