Are they any good? Who are they made by? I think I read somewhere that they are made by Wix. Thanks in advance!

The one I have is made in China. Not sure what actual company makes it. It looks well built, although I haven't cut it open. The bottom is sealed in plastic. Also on the box it says "Meets or exceeds OEM specifications. Manufactured by an TS 16949 Certified Company"

I know Parts+ sells the Wix brand in oil,air,fuel and also transmission filters.I just recently found out they had their own brand of filters.

blue parts plus seems to be identical to the napa pro-select which is made by wix.

That's odd, the one I have doesn't look like it's made by Wix and has a plastic seal on the bottom. The "Made in China" on the box makes me wonder... Once my camera is done charging, I'll take some pics of it. I don't know how old it is though, it was given to me by someone who scrapped their car and they no longer needed it.

I asked the person that gave it to me and he thinks he got it in 2006. I don't think it's a Wix, because of the "Made in China" on the box, the seal on the bottom, and the fact that the Wix for this application has 6 larger holes in the baseplate, not 8 like this one. I don't understand their numbering system, but it cross-references to the AC Delco PF52/Fram 3980/Wix 1036

Look inside. If it has a circle of small holes in the far end, likely it is made by Fram with a clicker bypass in the dome end. Champ was using those for a while before going to Ecores and blue buttons on the small ones. WIX or Clarcor's should have a solid steel end cap.

With it being free and a lack of evidence Frams are as bad as they are cracked up to be, I would run it and then cut it open.

I hope it's not a Fram! I could take it off and put on the Purolator I have... I had to go to Goodyear to get my oil changed, because I recently moved. Otherwise I would have done it myself. At least they use Kendall syn blend. I just had to crawl under the car and see what brand of filter they used.

I found a Parts Plus oil filter at a local Warehouse distributor which also sells retail. After a search online for a WIX distributor...and they mentioned their line of Parts Plus products.

PH2835 fits my 05 4Runner. Made in China on the box. The $2.02 price scared me. The clerk gave me a Parts Plus catalog. The inside back cover shows an exploded diagram of their oil filters.

I have a pic, but thought better of posting it due to copyright issues -?

Metal endcaps, coil spring, nitrile anti-drain valve, spiral wound center tube, 0.5mm steel sheet can. Doesn't sound like a FRAM to me!

In a limited comparison, was told a WIX uses a leaf spring vs a coil. Is that true?

The same location: cabin filter $5.29, air filter $10.22.
vs. $20.99 and $18.+ at the Dealer & WallyWorld, respectively.
I couldn't pass that up! Definitely my new air filter supplier.
