I changed the oil on my aunts car earlier, which takes a Napa 1348, I used a Proselect 21348. I noticed onthe filter now instead of Wix its says Mann-Hummel. I was aware of Mann Hummel now making these filters for a while now but I have to ask, can these Mann Hummel made filters be possible Tearolators? As in, do I have to worry about them tearing while in service?

Does the Proselect look like an old Wix version? If so, they probably didn't change it... yet.

It's still the same Wix filter as it's always been, just with Mann & Hummel ownership.
