Question Hankook Ventus V12 Evo vs. Pirelli pzero cinturato

So although my new f30 335i is still in the break in period, I pushed it pretty hard today (for about 3 seconds!) from about 30 mph to 65 mph. I did not cross 4500rpm but the car was still flying. Almost Literally.
What I noticed during the very rapid straight-line acceleration is that the car seemed to sway a wee bit side ways as if it was losing grip.

I'm currently running the OEM Pirelli pzero cinturato which I know are All Season Grand Touring tires.

My question is would changing out to Hankook's Summer Max Performance Ventus V12 Evo help with grip during hard acceleration and also with better braking in dry conditions?

The reason I doubt that is because the Hankooks are very cheap and not that big a brand as Pirelli.
