Looking for tires with really good cornering grip

My bike slid out while cornering on a really rough chip-seal road. The roads in my area are all coated with this despicable chip-seal, so Iím thinking about replacing my Conti 4000S tires with something that has better cornering grip Ė both wet and dry.

Iíve read Jan Heineís rationale for tires with some tread having better cornering grip (https://janheine.wordpress.com/2016/...nt-stick-well/ ), and Iíve seen mentions in VeloNews about some treaded tires cornering better in testing.

Has anyone gone from slick road tires to road tires with some tread and found that the cornering is more secure? If so, what brand of tires are/were you using?
