    What's the best oil filter brand?

    I just changed my oil in my 2011 VX and used the OEM Yamaha oil filter using OEM Yamaha oil. But I hear there are better oil filters at better prices out there.... KN, Sierra, NAPA Gold, and others. What's your take? What's the best oil filter brand to use??

    I use K&N on everything. Not the cheapest but that nut on the bottom sure is sweet when time to remove.

    Wix or NAPA Gold which is a Wix filter, says it right on the box. Everything else follows except Fram, they are complete garbage.

    The FZS oil filter is an exact match for a 2008 Toyota 4Runner V6. Find a K&N for that engine, and it will fit your FZS.

    For my personal FZ I like the oem Toyota filters they are a good quality filter, but your paying the price for it. I use Wix on all my cars/trucks which also a high quality filter at a better price. Just don't use a fram and you will be fine

    I like the OEM filter I had a Napa gold leak on me........maybe just a freak thing but with a 4k plus motor I use what mfg wants.....I mean if you cant afford or want to be cheap on your baby why even bother wave running anyways? Were talking 10 bucks difference. I also use the Yamalube it does not foam up at higher rpms like car oils that arnt designed for extended rpms.....again someone will say they been using this oil for this long.......this is a "to each his own type thing I guess"

    More than just them year and vehicles. I have a 2002 Avalon and a 2009 Tacoma and they use the same. That filter has been used for a long time
