Screwing them past the moment they start leaking...about a half turn more and they stop leaking.  The cap is just a dust cover and doesn’t stop it from leaking.

Maybe you have the wrong ones with 8.x mm diameter - they are too small!

The size is for permanent stems.  I think (hope) he’s talking about temporary angled stems used just for adding air and then removed.
