The image layer of one of my vinyl tiles is peeling off. Is there any way to glue it back down?

I don't believe that any adhesive will do a good job keeping the wear layer attached to the backing. It is not difficult to replace an individual tile if you have one.

It's in an area that is NEVER walked on so I'm going to try to glue it anyways. I know it's probably just a temporary fix, but what glue would be best.

RE: image layer peeling
Under the image layer. do you see a gray felt material or is it a white vinyl material? If it's gray felt, I would just try a premium felt-backed vinyl adhesive. If it's vinyl peeling away from vinyl, I would use a premium vinyl-backed vinyl adhesive. In either case, I would let the glue dry until tacky before re-installing your image layer. Use the smallest notched trowel you can find; probably a 1/32x 1/32x 1/32. If the image layer peeling off is partially transparent, I would abandon the repair option and stick with Del's advice.
