Vinyl planks - need glue or not?


ok we are planning to lay flooring in the bathroom tomorrow so i need fast answers... i have peel and stick vinyl planks. not the floating floor variety, just peel and stick. will these last for at least 5 years without extra adhesive? im going the cheap route now to be able to get moved in, i can update later. do i need extra adhesive or will the peel-n-stick adhesive work for about 5 years?

What's the companys web site say or the directions on the box?
Not sure how anyone's going to be able to come up with an ansewer since you did not state what brand it is or at least post it's web site.
In a bathroom I'd be using sheet linolium, so there would be no seams.
It ends up being less expencive and far faster to install.

it went on wood subfloor. and i didnt think that many companies made peel and stick vinyl planks, sorry, its tivoli tile. i dont like linoleum because of the fact that if u get a hole in it you cant repair it
