replacing self adhesive floor tiles

I have to replace a few floor tiles in a bathroom.
I have a partial box of new tiles left over which are several years old at this point. Is it still possible to use these? Any hints or problems to
look out for?

they are Tarkett Stylglo self Adhesive vinyl floor tiles.

Talking should be OK

I replace my vinyl tiles all the time; mine are close to 4 yrs old.
Were your spare tiles stored in cool, dry place with no direct sunlight?? You can double-check the adhesiveness of it by peeling back the backing paper and 'feel' the adhesive.

Make sure you remove the old tiles completely and clean the area thoroughly. Use a scraper to remove and to clean up; If an old adhesive is too stubborn, carefully heat it up with a heat gun or use a minimal amount of adhesive remover(Do not let it sip into other good tiles). Let it dry completely and apply the tile.
