IF you take two tile, place them finished side to finished side, and check if there are gaps, and if so, how big and where, that will give you an idea of how to minimize any lippage issues. A 50% overlap puts the (typically) highest point on one tile next to the lowest point of the next row, so isn't great. So using a smaller overlap is usually required. Once in awhile, you find really flat tile, but they're not the norm, which is why the standard is for that 25% overlap...generally, that would work with any tiles...once in awhile, you get lucky, but you won't know unless you check. A tile leveling system can help take a little bow out of the tile, but ensure you have really good coverage of your thinset and wait at least 24-hours before removing the clips!
