Spacing for porcelain wood tiles?

We just ordered today, they are 6 x 24. I want them close together. Is 1/8 enough or should I do 1/16? Thanks!
PS: they are rectified

Mine were a different shape but I used 1/16 and a dark grout to match. I loved it!

Hi, we are using the same size wood tile on our whole first floor. It is the Florida Tile Berkshire in Olive color. We did NOT need spacers. And they are close together. Thank god because using spacers would have made it go alot slower. Here is a picture. We have about 4 more days left to complete the floors.

Not related to the original question but, I'm curious about the use of porcelain tile in a living area. Won't footfalls sound high and treble-y, and feel extremely hard and cold? I love how they are making beautiful porcelain "wood" tile now, saw some nice ones at Porcelanosa but I always assumed they'd be used on walls or in bathrooms mostly...

duchamp - I will have to let you know how it is once we actually move it. But right now the tile doesn't feel cool to the touch and we live in CT and it's about 20-30 degrees outside and the house is being heated only by a gas heater in the basement.

Thanks for your pics...the floor looks great!! We are putting ours in a much smaller space, the hall/kids' bathroom. Install is tomorrow, and our tile guy also said for a floor spacers aren't necessary. I will post a pic when we are done!

I'm thinking of putting these in the foyer! Heading to Porcelanosa later to see if they have something nice on sale...
