How to cut large 3d tiles

Hello -
I have a dilemma where i bought these large 30x12" diamond pattern tiles from the tile shop that im going to use as an accent wall in my tub area. though the problem i see is im not sure how im going to cut the long dimension. My wet saw can only handle 24" tiles. Is there some special way to cut these tiles? Thanks!

John, with most saws...and I don't know what you have, you can generally set a long board on the tray, clamp your 90 degree fence beside it and put the tile to be cut hanging over the rear stop.

Run the tile for a bit and then pull the table back a bit and let your tile drop down flat on the table and cut it the rest of the way through...
