Possible to install wood flooring over ceramic tiles?

Q: Is it possible to lay wood flooring over ceramic tiles? What are the pros and cons if any?

A: The first question is how will you secure the floor?

Any floor will be as secure as the foundation it sits on. You are far better off, in spite of the work involved, to strip everything off to the original subfloor, screw down plywood if needed and then install your solid hardwood on top of that.

A: I don’t think the grout lines would be a problem. Just install the recommended foam padding first.
