3mm Shaft Prop-Saver and GWS 8x4 HD Props - How to get wobble free?

My searches really havent turned up much of anything on answering this question. I have a TP 2408-21 w/ a 3mm shaft and a Himaxx prop saver, but the prop hub recesses are too large for the front of the prop-saver. No matter how well I balance the prop, it always gets off center at some point (typically early on). Is there a bushing or spacer ya'll use to keep the GWS HD series props centered, or just let it wobble? I would like to have things ballanced to reduce wear and shaking my plane apart. Am I worrying too much about it?

There should be a shoulder on each side of the prop saver. On the 5 prop savers I have one side of them fits. One side of mine will fit the 8x4/8x6. The other side fits 6-7 inch props.
All my propsavers are generic no names.
The propsaver you have is for some of the APC brand maybe- bigger holes.

I have 3 of these below and they fit. Free shipping.
The second one down on the page.

There is an extra bushing that comes with it for bigger props but not needed for the GWS 6-8in.
