I want to be able to ride when the conditions are crunchy and icy as well as snowy.

Rode Burlingame the other day ( riding a 29ner). The trails had a variety of conditions on them. While I was able to ride OK, I felt that more traction would have improved the ride.
Thoughts?
I might be selling a set of 29er Nokians mounted to some WTB rims with a 12-34 cassette on it. Great set of wheels and tires ready to be put on a 29er. Front rim is standard quick release. I'm moving to a different format.
