    My lift is a 1979 Yale G83p dually. I changed two of the tires, tubes and flaps and, after inflating to 110 psi (125 is max), I noticed that the flap is protruding through the valve stem hole on the rim. Is this normal? Should there be an insert of some kind in there? Thanks

    USUALLY, flaps have a reinforced thicker area around the valve stem hole to help reduce that

    What kind of a bushing? The flap is probably not centered on the tube or needs to be flipped around . I dont know if it will ever cause a problem or not.

    It's a plastic bushing like this. https://www.ebay.com/itm/293622425117
    Everything is centered in the holes. I made sure of that when I installed. I'm going to try backing the pressure down to 90 to 95 psi and see what that does.
