Well, I just picked them up. I can't make out any name on the oval sticker--maybe ends or begins with o or lower case e. The quick release is Rino so maybe the hubs are too?

Pinch the tubular in various places to restrict the air as you pump it up. This can help locate the puncture. You can fold the tire or use pliers, vise grips, etc. I doubt it is the valve.
