Do you mean the peel and stick kind? Those have a factory finish and are not made to be polished. Once they are worn there is not much you can do to bring them back to the original shine. If you are talking about the commercial tiles, similar to what you see in a grocery store, then there are floor polishes made specifically for them, and you would probably want to strip the mop n glo off before polishing.

If those are peel & stick, they are not to be waxed. Wax just makes them dull.
