The new non wired backed fram ultra.
'If" is the key word! I am optimistic...Yet, cautious!I really don’t see what all of the fuss is about. It still looks like a quality filter. The wire backing was fine. However, if FRAM can produce a filter that will hold up and not tear, the wire backing won’t be needed. I’ll buy them for my Zero Turn. My vehicles take cartridges.
I think that’s part of what got me off Motorcraft … I could tear them like paper … but not the equivalent Mobil 1 with the thicker blended media … then started running 10k to offset cost same as I have done with Fram XG, RP, and Wix XP oil filtersOP Did you try tearing it? I know it's anecdotal, but what are your first impressions? Thanks you!
