So I have 3 pots right now (vol/tone/tone all 250k). I will be having HSH pickups on my guitar.
I've heard that you only need the 500k in the vol pot, and 250s in the tones will be fine.
I've also heard that all 3 pots should be 500k
Which info is right?

THanks

You should be fine with just 500k in the volume pot.
But it depends on the pickups, really.

doesn't matter if you interchange. 500K for all would be ideal. They're cheap stuff anyways.

It's personal preference really. You can use a 250K pot volume with humbuckers. It will make your humbuckers sound a little deeper though. You could try it with the 250K volume pot. You might like it. If it's too deep then you can put a 500K in. Most people do like 500k pots better with humbuckers though. But alot of people like to use 250K pots with Seymour Duncan JB model humbuckers because they smooth out the highs some. It just depends on how your pickup sounds.

i'll have a tb-4 in the bridge, and a little 59 (stacked humbucker) in the neck.
So the rating on the tone pots effects the sound also? not just the volume?

They both have different sounds 250 k is creamy 500 is harsher more dirty, you could even buy a larger impedence pot

Rating on the pot has almost no effect on the volume, mostly just the tone.
