The stair treads I found were slightly different. Your's looks like the lip edge was curled all the way into a "U".

I've only seen them in black, but with slightly different patterns.

I don't know about the painting.....I'd worry about messing it up with my shoe. But it looks nice with all your extra work.
Yeah, they were more like "U"s but that is why I used the heat gun to shape it better. I trimmed the lip because it was a bit too long. Apparently, I got a different brand of stair tread then when you did yours.

That's why I use the clear coat, for the added protection for the paint.
