I would say a large, but call SaharaSmoke.com and give them your dimensions of your base opening and your stem.

Cheers!

Wet a think piece of cardboard .. and wrap that around the stem, then insert it into the base. That will work till you can fix your issue.

Trim the grommet! Then wet the gromet. This will fix it. If you can get it in 40% then you can get it in, no fancy tricks needed

just remove the hole grommet and wrap your stem with electrical tape so that it fits perfectly. thats what I've done with all of my hookahs. gives a really tight seal

+1 on this solution... a little sand paper all the way around should do the trick. Remember sand a little then check. You can always take away more, you just can't put it back on. Oh... and try to sand evenly all the way around.
