cutting 16 " wall tiles

my shower tiles are 16x10 and 5/16" thick
i cannot find a cheap saw that will cut over 13"
i dont want to buy $100 cutter for 20 cuts
or rent a wet saw for $58

my question is- will the score and snap cutters($ 20) be suitable for this tile(ceramic) all cut edges will be in corners and then caulked(or grouted if any one has thoughts on that)

any ideas?

thankx

Usually a professional will have both a scoring tool and a wet saw. Even a hand held makita angle grinder with a small diamond blade.

Some tile won't clean cut with a scoring tool. That's when the wet saw gets unloaded. Any "L" shaped cuts will require a diamond blade.
