    Tubeless valve stem

    How much do tighten them when you first install them?

    Thanks

    Tight enough so there isn't any air leaking past them, not so tight you can't get them undone. If you're looking for some kind of number to put on it, forget it...doesn't exist.

    Are all tubeless valves the same, that is, are there enough differences in road tubeless valves to make it worth using one kind rather than another?

    Not the same. You want to use the one that was supplied w/ your rim. If that isn't possible you want one that fits properly, meaning one that probably looks very similar to the original.
