Tiles sometimes make it hard to assure that the cube is properly aligned from the previous move before starting a second move. The result will be that the cube will seem temporarily jammed. Because stickers are much thinner, they usually doesn't pose the same problem.

But, if you plan to do very much speed cubing, make sure that you use PVC plastic stickers, not the crappy paper ones (they wear out quickly) that Oddzon Rubik cubes are known for. Newer cubes from Oddzon are supposed to have PVC stickers now, but I'm sure there are many stocked in stores which are the old ones. It is extremely difficult to tell if the stickers are PVC or just laminated paper just by looking.
