Peel and Stick Tiles
 
I am looking at getting some peel and stick tiles to replace my floor in my camper and have a couple of questions.

The store I have looked in have two types of tiles, the cheap ones which feel cheap, there flimsy when you pick them up. The second is the more expensive tile but feel a lot stronger then the cheap ones. Is it worth the money to buy the more expensive ones.

I see on the package that you can grout the tiles, is this a neccassary step or will butting them up to each other be good enough.

The thinner tiles may fracture on you especially if you floor is not perfectly flat so get the thicker ones. Over time the are more prone to loose flex and dry out too.

If you are putting them in a wet area, grouting/sealing them is not a bad idea.

Make sure you follow prep instructions.

Yep this is what i used. Also on the back of the tiles there are arrows make sure you lay according to them. Or at least there was on mine. They were Armstrong.
