Grouted Vinyl (Peel & Stick) Tile
I'll tell you a bit about how we did things.Step one : Rip up carpet, all tack strips and staples.Step two: Vacuum plywood and then dry brush it (there are some recommendations for chemical cleaning agents, but we didn't use any)Step 3: Figure out placement (brick pattern or other, etc.)Step 4: Peel backing off and start laying the tile. Press firmly on each tile. We used a rolling pin on some and then used our feet on others.Step 5: Use a razor knife to score any tiles that need to be "cut".Step 5: Grout (Making sure to sponge off excess to eliminate the "fog")Step 6: Let dry.Enjoy.* So, we have had this in our house for over a year and it looks great.

What prep or repair work depends on the condition of your existing floors especially the subfloor.
It's better to correct issues so your new floors are secure so they can last w/o issues. "A job worth doing is a job worth doing right".
A subfloor can be 1/8 of an inch thick. The peel & stick tiles are usually as thick as linoleum or the 12X12 tiles from the 80's.
