Generac oil filter to Fram

Someone gave me 4 oil filters. I wanted to use these filters in my Generac generator. They are Fram TG4967. I have been using a WIX 51394. In cross referencing, I can only a cross from Wix 51394 to Fram PH4967. Are TG4967 and PH4967 filters interchangeable?
I don't know how old these filters are. Can they go bad just sitting around on a shelve?
Thanks ........................

Agree, same thing. No need to buy oil filters for 4 years now.

Fram filters are bad from the factory. Had bad problems of paper coming apart. Do yourself a favor and toss em.

There are a few spots on the internet that have reviewed the baseline Fram filters and my take away was that they're bottom of the barrel in terms of quality. Can they be used? Sure...

Their higher end (toughguard) filters may be better.

Just know what you're buyin' with Fram.

I will never understand companies that have been in business for "Years" and produce bad, terrible, poor quality, falling apart products. Yet are used by hundereds if not thousands of fleets across the Nation.
Fram makes as good a filter as the next manufacture and makes them for numerous others as well.
