Last time I went to Oreily's I saw very few Wix oil filters.Maybe five different part numbers.Are they hidding these behind the counter or maybe there is no one who's gonna pay a little bit more for a quality oil filter.
Wix part numbers are not easily deciphered. Someone walking up ..looking for a PH8A/FL1A ...if they don't know, how they gonna find out. They can't consult the Fram Consumer or Purolator consumer catalog that may be sitting there like it is most places. I don't think the WIX master catalog is consumer friendly. They aren't offered retail in enough outlets.
