grouting vinyl stick on tiles

I want to install vinyl stick on tiles in a kitchen over existing vinyl sheet goods in good condition and then grout. My question is; is there any issue with grout adhering to the existing vinyl sheet goods?

there's many issues. grout will not stick to vinyl. those tiles are not made to have grout put on them. they butt up tight to each other.

I don't think that's true of all vinyl stick-on tiles. We just bought some Trafficmaster Ceramica tiles, and they can be used with or without grout. The grout they call for is simple premixed grout. The specs for this tile say it can be installed over one layer of vinyl.

traffic master ceramic tiles can be grouted because they are ceramic.. vinyl tiles can not be grouted.

MLB, maybe the OP refers to this particular brand, which is indeed vinyl.
