Rubber valve stem stabilizer

Can someone recommend where I can purchase new rubber valve stem stabilizers. These rubber grommets hold the valve stem from the inner rim in place on the outer rim. The current rubber valve stem stabilizers slip off over time. You can see in the picture below the valve stem is damaging the rim
as a result of the stabilizer popping out. I've pushed the ones pictured back in place but over time they pop out.

Depending on tire pressure you should likely be using metal valve stems not rubber. I think 80 - 85 PSI is max for rubber valve stems. Myself and many other use metal valve stems from Borg. Then you don't need any stabilizers.

I have the same problem with one wheel. Last time I worked with it, I took the grommet out and turned it around, hasn't come out yet. If I hold my grommet up to view it from the end, one side is taller than the other. Have a look at yours.

Fleetwood currently has a recall for this very problem on more current chassis.

The valve stems are metal. There is a rubber grommet that holds the inner tire valve stem in place where is passes through the outer rim so you can access. It's the rubber grommet I am looking for.

The link I posted earlier today is a place that sells the rubber grommets.

My mistake,

Freightliner currently has a recall for this very problem on more current chassis.

Here's the link to the page with the kits for various dually setups. There are some links down the left side, and one of them is for parts. I'd also suggest calling them Monday if you don't see what you need.

The metal valve stems can't be "stabilized" if they are not in the middle of the hole. The valve needs to be loosened and rotated so it is in the center.

...depending on the thickness of the rim, I have used a modest amount of adhesive to "glue" the outside edge of donuts in place...TPMS sensors can help to create this issue--adhesive will help.
