True. But in the case of the wheels, the shop that the seller may use to repair the wheel may only charge $50, where as the shop that the buyer may use may charge $100. Which means the seller thinks that the wheels are valued at $50 more than the buyer.
I agree with what you're saying. The best advice I can give is to shop around, know what the going price for certain things are, and don't be afraid to haggle. In some cases sme people just want it out of their garage.
