Tile leveling systems have 1/16" spacers but 6'"x 36" tile requires a minimum 1/8" grout line. How do you achieve that?

On floors I like Tavy spacers like these, on walls horseshoe style. I've never used lippage system as spacers

So I need to use 1/8" spacers and nor rely on the leveling system clips as spacers?

That would be my suggestion. Shouldn't affect the installation.

Depending on situation, I sometimes don't use spacers at all, but rely on "eyeballing".

Thanks. Installing about 1000 sf so I want to get it right. I've installed a fair amount of tile but this is my first time on the plank tile using a leveling system.

2 weeks ago I laid similar size tile using the lash leveling system and separate 1/8” spacers in conjunction with each other. Worked like a charm.
