Storing Oil Filters Unheated Space

I have a couple dozen oil filters for my vehicle stored in an unheated garage (freezes). Should I bring them in the house? Or will they stand up to the elements?

I would think the unused filters would be fine stored at most any temp.

No issues at all. They sit in unheated storage areas all the time.

A couple of dozen? Must be planning to keep this vehicle for a while??

Duh! Of course. That's answers my concerns.

I will come clean, they aren't for my car (I didn't know where else to post this) they are for my lawn tractor and I stocked up on them because they were being discontinued at the local autoparts store , this particular Percolator brand was like 2 bucks a piece... the comparable briggs and Stratton ones were close to 8 bucks and I think the other auto brand ones were close to that price.....

Thanks for the tips!

The boxes may fall apart exposing them to dust, stick them in a trash bag.
