Sound fair?

So I just ordered a new set of Wheels/Tires. They are paid for, but with the hopes that I would get about $400/$500 for my old wheels (Already have the tires sold for $400 once the new ones come in) Anyway, I put them up for sale on the Baltimore Craigslist for $500, with somewhat low expectations (never hurts to try) I would love $500, Feel pretty good about $450, and settle for $400, but I have not even had a bite yet! I dropped to $450, and still nothing. I thought that $500 was high, but usually I still get an email or two from people who have interest, but no intent to actually buy.

So I guess my question is... is my price/expectations just too high? I know this may be the wrong place to ask, but I figured I want to sell in Baltimore area, so who better to ask, than people near the Baltimore area. (People in California dont need winter wheels after all LOL!) I guess I just figured this would be prime time to sell because everyone would be looking for cheap wheels to throw on for the winter.

So what ya think? should I lower my price, or am i pretty close? Ebay has them at $99-$150 each

Thanks guys

I agree, be patient. Remember how small a list of buyers you are trying to sell to, as opposed to E-Bay.

Ya, sometimes I relate selling stuff to the free section, which it is not. If I put something on the free section, its gone in 10 minutes. I put an old toilet and sink out, they were 14 years old, and picked up in 30 minutes. Wish my wheels would go like that lol!
