I will be installing the tile over existing tiles in a bedroom. The existing tiles are currently very secure.

We have used self-adhesive vinyl tiles several times and have never needed extra adhesive. Also, I've never seen them say anything about doing that on any of the home improvement shows on tv. But they do indicate that the floor needs to be very clean.

I'm sure it will be fine as long as you have a good clean, level floor to start.

    i've laid them several times and never had any major problems, but i think if i ever lay them again i will use adhesive. no such thing as overkill when you want something to last.

    the tile on the floor has to be very clean and wax free. put a new one on it,,,,if it sticks then you are good to go.

    If you really prep the floor well. You know super clean, then you should be alright. Unless you end up with a small piece in the corner some where. Then You might use a little extra.
