How to protect inner dual tire stems from damage

I have had an ongoing problem with inner dual tire stems hitting the rim like this which wears down a notch and eventually cuts a hole in the stem so the air leaks out. The opening in the rim where the stem pokes through does have a rubber piece to keep the stem in the center of the opening, but the rubber piece keeps slipping out and the banging starts. Has anyone found a permanent solution?

What I have done is found a piece of heavy, thick walled hose that is large enough to slip over the valve stem but tight enough that it doesn't fly off. It is black so it just looks like a valve stem. They have held up well for a year. I need to check them before I start out this season to see if they need replacing.

Start using metal valve stems with the holding nut securely tightened, the metal stem will not move.

Can you post a picture of what they are hitting? And are those extensions or the actual valve stems?

I second what was said. Take to a hardware store and buy a foot of thick rubber hose that securely slides over the contact area.
