Hi, there:
    I found the brand "HP259" in a local tire store with decent price.  The size of tire is 205/55/16R.  I googled online which company manufactured this brand and I found confusing results. On some webpages, it is said Yokohama produce it.  And on some other pages, it is said that Cyclone, a company I couldn't find over the internet, produce it.  Does somebody know the quality of this HP259, and possibly the reputation of the company "Cyclone"?

I just purchased a set at my local NTB store in Hilliard, OH.
It is a corporate brand (Cyclone) made by Yokohama in their Virginia plant. It used to be marketed as A305 which was a very good handling tire. Paid $55/tire
Installed on a 03 Saturn L200.

HP 259 tires are made by Yokohama. They are the "house brand" at NTB (National Tire and Battery). If you bought your car from Carmax, it probably has HP 259 tires on it, because they contract with NTB for all their tires (at least in IL).  I just bought a pair of HP 259 tires today.
