I have to replace the bottom third of all 3 sides of my shower. The original tile is approximately 1/32" smaller than the replacement tile (both are 4.25" square). The problem is lining the new up with the old. When I put 7 or 8 tiles in a row it throws me off by about 1/4". Not a good look. The old tiles are made in Mexico by Dal-tile, the new ones were made in the US. Should I try to find Dal-tiles? if yes, who sells them? I'm in SE Michigan. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Dal has regional distribution warehouse all around the country. Check your yellow pages or do a google search to find one close to you. Their sizing may still be off from what you have. How about putting a decorative listelli between the old and new tile so the difference in grout lines is not so obvious, or do them on a diagonal. The color may not be exact either so make it look like the contrast was done intentionally rather than as a repair.
