Compressor Relief Valve

Got an old compressor from my father in law, thought it needed a new pressure relief valve. Old one was too covered in rust/grime, couldn't read it til I took it off: 110psi. New one is 125psi.

From what I can tell on the tank, max pressure if 150psi. Is 125psi cutting it too close?

Thanks in advance

Compressor Relief Valve

its hard to say there could be rust in there so you cant really go by tank specs when it was rated new.
