The local drugstore is closing out on Fram air filters for $3.99. I do not like their oil filters but how are their air filters?

For $4, I'd use them. If it's the same price or anywhere near the price of a Purolator, I'm getting the Purolator.

My reference is opposite with you, if Purolator is the same price or anywhere near the price of a Fram, I'd buy Fram. Fram air filter looks like better quality and fits the air box better than Purolator.

I regularly maintain two vehicles and both of them have Fram Extra Guard filters. I don't like their oil filters but you really can't mess up an air filter. Use with confidence and enjoy the money you're saving getting them for cheap.

Fram Tough Guard oil filters are a huge step up from the orange cans if they have some I'd buy them too.

I am not a Fram oil filter user either but I do use their air filters. They seem pretty well made.

Not a fan of their oil filters, but have no problems with their air filters. FRAM is basically all I run due price and availability. Run with confidence thumbsup.

Their air filters don't seem any more or less durable than the standard ACDelco, Wix, and Purolater filters I often encounter.

I cut myself on one years ago. The foam is soft and the edges of the wire mesh can poke through that. I know the flexibility isn't really an issue, but I've avoided them ever since even though I have no opinion on their effectiveness when properly installed.

I never like fram engine air filter. It didn't fit well. I stick to toyota Oem and pay $17.
