26x4.0 vs 29x2.25

I live in the Twin Cities, MN.

My 700x35 studs really struggle with the ice ruts that form on the roads after the cars drive through, and things re-freeze. 26x4.0 does good in the winter, but the rest of the year I don't really ride it. And I'd kind of like to consolidate the stable.

Will 29x2.25ish studs handle the ice ruts and "mashed potatoes?"
Good night...and good luck
