Is there a reason not to use wire mesh for backing.

Any good reason not to use wire mesh as backing for tile. I have a new floor that I am adding too. The new floor has a blue mesh over plywood with quick set. I tried to use cemet board but the 1/4 inch is too thick. I do not have lots of options and can only find the wire mesh. Will I be in trouble useing the wire mesh?

If you are using the wire lath with thinset, yes, you will be in trouble, it should only be used in full mud jobs or with SLCs over plywood.
