Default Different inner tube valve sizes?

Just both a pair of alexrims sx44.
When i got home to install it to my bike, i noticed that my current inner tube's (CST 2.10) presta valve, cannot fit into the rim's pin hole. It seems that the rim has a smaller pin hole diameter.

This is the first time that i experienced this, so my question is:
1. Do different inner tube's valve diameter really exist? (akala ko kasi standard lang ung sizes ng mga ito eh)

2. If yes, could you kindly recommend a specific brand/model to fit my new rims so that i know what to ask our LBS?

salamat po.

my bad.
im talking about schrader valve. My cst has a schrader valve.

Pasensya na po. I went to LBS, and the store owner told me na, presta nga ang sagot sa problema ko.
But she also mention on drilling the rim on its pin hole. MArami daw gumagawa nun.

SAFE kaya un?

i used the drill...
basta dahan-dahan ka lang sa pag drill,
wag dere-derecho,,,
baka sa sobrang init sa pag butas
matunaw ang decals ng rim mo...

i did this because i want to save precious petots
buying local schrader valves...

kinisin (pwedeng gumamit ng liha or round file) mo na lang sir ung pinagbutasan mo para mawala ung talim (nakakabutas ng valve) sa gilid in case na magdesisyon ka na gumamit ng drill and make sure that the valve is properly angled (90 degrees) because if not, there's a possibility that the valve hole in the rim will cut your valve stem.
