tile floor toilet components

I'm getting ready to tile 2 of my bathrooms converting them from linoleum to tile and wondered if I just needed new wax ring and extender flange for the toilets to drain properly? will pull up floor to subfloor, install backer board and tile.

Need a little more information to help you with your project. First is a quick check on the joists and subfloor components to make sure they are satisfactory for a tile installation. Need the size and spacing of the floor joists as well as the total length of the unsupported span beneath (to determine bounce). Then how thick is the sub-flooring. Don't count the 1/4" that is under the linoleum as that needs to come out anyway.

Not sure on joist as I haven't pulled up the floor yet. I bought the big wax ring and the extender flange kit. I'll reply back as soon as I pull up lenoleum. I have the 1/4 hardibacker to go down.

So my floor was level all the way and solid and is now tiled. My toilet flange is 1/8 inch below the surface of the tile. Do I need to use an extender here? or just put a new wax ring on it and set the toilet?
