Bathroom wall covering

I am looking to cover my shower walls in some sort of tile and I have fallen in love with the looks of the aluminum tiles. Has anyone used these in the shower area yet? Home Depot and Lowes sell them and I have also found similar ones on Amazon.

Should I grout these a special way or use a specific adhesive? I dont think the adhesive that comes on them will be strong enough. What are your thoughts on them for a bathroom/shower tile?

they would look great, but I have two concerns
1 - cold!
2 - I don't think they are made for wet areas and you may have trouble sealing between the tiles. water behind the tiles is asking for trouble. Have you considered having a metal shop fab up some wall coverings out of Aluminum sheet? the cost would likely be less than the tiles and you could minimize or eliminate seams. Otherwise, I would attach the tiles to a sheet of plastic to separate the tiles from the Airstream wall, and "grout" them with silicone sealant.
