Owned by conglomerate Honeywell. Maker of low quality, well marketed oil filters. Also makers of air filters that aren't that bad. Their oil filters are unlikely to ruin your engine but it's a premium priced product that is made cheaper than those costing less. Fram uses glue to hold cheap cardboard end caps on the filter media. You can spend one or two bucks less and get a filter with metal end caps. When cut open Fram's end paper caps make them look more like a roll of toilet paper than an oil filter.
My engine knocked during cold starts with the OCOD and Tough Guard. I Dumped the fram and went with Purolator Classic. No more knocking.

Fram filters are known as OCOD. Orange Can of Death. I use a Wal-Mart Super Tech before Fram.

Fram makes other relabeled filters. A good alternative is Purolator, Wix or Motorcraft. Motorcraft is made by Purolator at the time of writing.

Fram is spam forwarded to you by friends, colleagues, and most often, family members. Fram was coined at McAfee, Inc.- the security software vendor.
Fram is cutesy, dopey, sappy, rarely really funny, interesting or "awesome" email forwarded to you by someone you know.
