In most cases floor tiles are thicker to avoid cracking and provide durability and withstand weight on the floor. Wall tiles are thinner as their purpose is more for the looks and provide a water resistant surface. Therefore you should not mount floor tiles on walls as they are too heavy, nor should you install wall tiles on the floor as they will most likely crack when weight is applied.
