What is the best way to go on the entry steps for looks and non-skid?

Thanks,
Danny

For better or worse, I just put down some very high density, short nap, commercal grade carpet I had left over.  Most of the time I can just sweep it out the nap is so tight.  Very non skid, and so far I like it a lot.  We'll see how it lasts over time.  I was originally planning pn putting some non skid ceramic tile, but this was easy and I already had it, so in it went.

We used a textured surface ceramic tile. We were concerned about diesel fuel that might be tracked in when fueling at truck stops as well as normal water, dirt, etc.  More work to install, but it looks good and is very functional.  Jack

Danny, I removed the rubber insert that comes in MCI.....I went to Lowes and bought a couple of exterior floormats for the home. They are the bristle kind.....I cut these to fit and inserted them in where the rubber ones were removed. I have been really pleased with these...I can reach down and take them out and shake the crud outof them.
