Porcelain tile - asking for problems?

Hi everyone, I hope you won't mind answering a quick question about porcelain tile. I finally have had some success cutting out the hole for the flange, but realize now I drilled the holes in the wrong place. Am I just begging for trouble if I drill four more holes from what you see in the pic, all of them about an inch away from the current holes? I expect the answer to be yes, but if folks weigh in saying it shouldn't be a problem, then I'm going to save myself the work!

Thank you as always for your time!

I would say that if you get good coverage when you set the tile you should have no worries, but that is my opinion. If the tile was going to crack it would likely happen where big hole is and spider out from that.

Thank you for weighing in, Shawn. On the underlayment there's a small drop to 1/16" near the opposite end of the tile, I think that's what has me extra nervous.

I think with a good drill bit and water...you should be able to do it. Just take your time. I would give it a shot.

You should flatten that out the day before you start setting tile but a 1/16 probably ain't going to be enough to stress over.

You're probably right. The good thing is, the area where there's a drop won't get much traffic as it's behind the toilet.
