Toilet Flange with new floor


I am remodeling the bathroom and it currently has sheet vinyl. I am going over the top of this with the groutable vinyl tiles.

The thickness of the tile is slightly over 1/16".

Is there going to be any issue sitting the new toilet on the old toilet flange without raising it to be exactly flush with the new floor? Or is this such a small amount that it will have no affect?
Thanks

Shouldn't be an issue at all. The only thing I am concerned about is how you install your vinyl tile. I am assuming that it has to be glued and can't see it sticking well to the current sheet vinyl. I also had no idea that they make vinyl tile that can be grouted.

With the new toilet laid on its side, place a straight edge across the bottom of the toilet and measure the depth where the wax ring will be to determine the crush of a 1" thick wax ring.

Me either CG, but I don't get out much anymore.

Yes you will be fine. Flange and floor.
Keep in mind that any water that gets under the tile could cause the glue to fail. Just caulk real good around the baseboard when finished.

And those tiles are a little more rigid then the cheap ones. So edges should not curl even if some of the glue fails.

Those tiles are 2.5mm thick, which is roughly 0.1", which is nice and thick and rigid. If you are going to try sticking those on sheet vinyl, I'd clean the vinyl thoroughly with household ammonia which is used to remove floor wax. I hope it's smooth vinyl with no texture. That's moreso to give the grout something to stick to than the tile itself. Go for no more than 1/8" joints.

I did groutable vinyl tiles in one of our bathrooms. The grouting is tricky to finish so you get the right look, not smooth to the top, but with just the right bit of depression. I used a poured self-leveling compound under it. Because it's vinyl which expands and contracts, over the years you will get slight gapping opening up between the vinyl and the grout.
