Wanting to tile entry steps

I am wanting to tile out entry steps and would like to hear from someone who has done this. I saw a couple at the DRR in Quartzsite last year. It looks like there is metal under the vinyl on the back of the steps. Did you use cement board under the tile and if so how did you attach it. Also, is there a special glue & grout for this application with so much motion involved. Any help will be appreciated.

IMHO they could be very slippery if wet.

Gary- If you decide to tile I'd be interested to know where you find matching tile. I'd like to tile my living room to match the kitchen and have not been able to find a perfect match.

Ours steps came full tiled from factory, treads & risers. Business edge of treads have grooved aluminum threshold strip, so not slippery when wet (just don't let them ice up).
