Question Italian porcelain 6x6

I have to set these 6x6 tiles on the shower walls. They have a bevel on two sides and are flat cut on the other two. Do I have to use spacers on these, or can make sure a flat side is touching a bevel side to create a slight gap? I had planned to use 1/8 in spacers, then I thought of this other method, which would put em very tight.

Hi Jake, you want to have some spacing on them to get some grout in there.

right, so maybe somebody knows the tiles i'm using, with the two flat sides and the two bevel sides, and has set them before without spacers. this would give a gap of about 3/64, between a 1/16 and 1/32. not enough? I better check the tiles to see if the're rectified.

Hello Jake,
Have you laid them out dry to see if the spacing is constant??? If so, I suppose you *could* set them that way but with tile butted against tile, I'd be afeared of even the slightest expanssion cracking tiles.
