Question Peel and Stick Tile Curling Up

I installed some peel and stick tile in my basement on a concrete floor (I did have it tested for moisture). I cleansed the concrete before installation and applied the recommended adhesive. Now it seems that the edges are starting to curl up. Could I have applied them too close together or What?

Curling self adhesive tile

If after cleaning concrete and allowing to thoroughly dry before tile installation, then perhaps curling could be do to one of the following:

Wrong trowel size used (too little adhesive) causing tile movement.
Allowing a wet-set adhesive to over dry.
Tiles not acclimated to job site causing expansion or contraction.
Improper rolling or not rolled at all.
