I have used Fram oil filters from time to time on many cars over the last 50 years and never had any problems with it. I really liked the rough finish they put on so it was easier to grab by hand. I see other brands now have that - was that a Fram invention?

I really like the 1" nut on the end of K&N. Its going on and staying on until you take it off with that 1" socket

I see that 1" nut on lots of filters, but very hard to get a socket onto the Commander 5.7 filter, my hand fits in there better.

I never had a problem getting in there with a socket and if you cant get it with your hand its a pain getting a filter wrench around it and having room to turn it. If you noticed my signature I also have a Hemi wink

been using Mopar filters with Pennz. Ultra oil. My Hemi did not like the Pure1 filter I threw on at one point, so I went back to Mopars. Too many horror stories on Frams. Id stay away unless you are using the extra guard. Baldwin, k&N, Mobil 1, Wix are all great filters if you dont like Mopars.

When in Az. We had a company called Yavapai Fleet, all the County, City, etc. bought oil filters , hoses there. They had about 6 filters cut so you could actually see what's inside. It was amazing the difference. Some as Fram had hardly no paper inside. I always go with Wix or Baldwin. I stared buying Wix for my Cummins Diesel truck and my Backhoe . A mechanic friend said those Cummins motors are 10k for a long block, so take care of it!!
So I started using Wix in everything.
A Orielly's here stocks the Wix Filters.
