Walmart clearance. YMMV. My 1st post, hopefully not a repost (I searched).

Purolator oil filters seem to be more discounted. Not sure if they're clearing out the old stock for newer design.

Fram toughguard oil fiters are also nicely discounted.

Before anyone start bashing Fram or Purolator, I've used these type of cheapo oil filters on my truck with castrol and/or mobil1 synthetics every 7k-8k miles for the last 250k miles and my truck is still running fine on its original engine.

WARNING: Purolator Classic (white can) and Purolator One (Yellow can) are prone to tearing of the filter element, that is why Puroloatr is changing their markieting colors for their new filters and clearing out their old stockpile of filters at Walmart andother retailers. NOTE: Rock Auto (largest online auto parts store) has currently stopped selling Purolator Classic and Purolator One filters.
Google Purolator tears
I've cut open several that I bought last year and now changed the filter to find out they have tears after 3k miles and 7 months. They are fine when new, but as they age get brittle and prone to tears. Attached are pictures of the tears. The left two pictures are from PL14610 (produced May 2014) with 3,000 7 months and right picture is from L14460 ( produced Nov 2014) with 5000 miles 7 months.
The only job of a filter is to filter out dirt and it isn't even doing that.

Friends don't let friends buy Fram oil filters.

Go find a picture of one cut apart and you'll see.

It's not an opinion, I'm the furthest from an "expert"

just go look at one cut in half.

then look at a PureOne cut in half.

people also cut them in half after use and find sometimes the filter element has torn so it is not filtering at all

We're not talking $100 more for a better filter, we're talking like $2

If you change your oil often I guess you could survive with a cheap filter but I'm sticking to PureOne

Also see if your car can handle an oversized filter because that doesn't cost anything more and gives you better protection.

Small japanese engines need all the help they can get.

Purolator has had, or has, issues with tearing. Look it up. Fram, as rudimentary as they look, has no issues.

You must not be up to date with all the PureONE filter problems within the past couple years especially with torn pleats. Fram Ultra line of filters is leaps and bounds better in quality compared to Fram lower tier lines.

Haven't seen much reported on BITOG regarding PureONE. Links?

It's an air filter. Drive a regular car and it won't matter. 250k on my 4Runner with cheapo oil and air filters. So I guess my Japanese engine needed all the help it could get. (not)

there also seems to be a $4 MIR when purchasing a oil filter and air filter

I use only Purolator PureOne since 2004, nothing else. Is there a problem with it now?
