Its been getting down to the mid 20s (F) here for my morning commute, and though its been pretty dry, there have been some frosty places. So far not a problem; I'm running MEFO sports, with good tread. Probably not the best snow tire, but then the KLR is a bit too heavy for a snow bike ;-). If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say any good, soft street tire with lots of siping would work on a little frost (not deep snow).
In my younger days a buddy & I would commute all winter on Yamaha DT400s, with sheet metal screws in the knobbies; big fun! I sold the DT and got an XT550, and soon quit riding in the winter; that bike was too quick steeering, top heavy, and just heavy.
