Best tires for 700c x 35c?

im looking to get more rugged tires for my hybrid when im going real fast i dont feel comfortable on the stock tires i have now.
any that are good for sandy and streets that might have more bumps.

I'm happy with some Vittoria Randonneur Pro tires in that width. Hard to find though now.

Can you go up to 38 mm? I recently installed some Soma Shikoro tires that I'm pretty happy with. They are nominally 700c x 38 mm, though mine measure to 35 mm using a caliper. For me they are about lower pressures and comfort on rough pavement, access to gravel, and a more stable feeling when cornering at speed.

I ride road and really like Gator Skins. Set I have now has 3,100 miles. I've had only one puncture. It was caused by a small shard of metal. I'm not very concerned with weight just durability. I ordered the 'non-folded' 700c x 32's from Amazon.

Try running your tires with a little less pressure for sandy streets. This will help with "bumps" too.

just to be a little more specific, cuz I'm thinking of a cpl tires I use, but before I suggest an opinion ...:
  • what are your current tires? (brand/model/size)
  • got a photo of the problem street(s)?
  • what does "fast" mean to you?

NOTHING will give you traction in/on sand!

Pick another, or better describe your needs.
