Are valve stems universal?

I'm going to be buying some wheels, by themselves and then tires seperately. Then the lug nuts too now that I think about it. Can I just use any valve stem? Or would I have to get a valve stem made for that wheel? Or a valve stem for that tire?

Thanks for the input!

Sweet thanks for the response. Does anyone know if some brands are better then others? Valves a valve right? Or does it make a big difference?
