Peel and stick vinyl tiles over cork underlayment.

I am trying to find out if you can lay peel and stick tiles over a cork underlayment. Can anyone help?

#1, I would never ever suggest to anyone to use peel and stick tiles.
#2, What the manufactures directions say?
I'd bet there going to say over 1/4" underlayment rated plywood.

Well the surface needs to be primered, but I don't think that will work with cork. Cork would suck out all the moisture.

I agree with not using peel and stick - I've seen too many of them not stay stuck. There are better options that don't cost much more.

What do you suggest as better options that don't cost much more, or does it depend on the space, subfloor, etc? We were looking at these (TrafficMASTER 12 in. x 24 in. Peel and Stick Industrial Stone Vinyl Tile (20 sq. ft. / case)-SS5083 - The Home Depot) for our kitchen, but the consensus in these forums seems to be to avoid peel-and-stick.

I like using the 12" square glue down vinyl tiles. They are thicker, wear longer and not prone to lift. Allure has some tiles that match your dimensions. They have a good reputation although I've not used them.
