Pros and cons to both. If you are talking about quality products in both realms it depends on the type wear you plan to give the floors. Wood is going to breath better than tile and you can get quality product with amazing finish warranties. Porcelain will hold up better to slushy boots rock salt and things as well as animal paws. Tile may, real or imagined, feel colder.

Make sure to buy extra of either for repairs since this is a rental situation.

I am thinking resale value and wood grain porcelain being a trend that is dismissed as cheap and cheesy. Thoughts from others?
I think the tile would be a better choice.
trends come and go from wood, carpet, tile & laminate so your house isnt going to be in style forever.
