What are the cities in Bolivia you can find a good tire selection?

Hi everyone:

Front tire (from San Diego, CA) is finally showing some cupping wear although I do have a good amount of tread left. I'm thinking Bolivia will soon deal a death blow to my front tire (110/80R-19).

I'm in La Paz now, and from what I hear from folks; you buy your tires here or Cochabamba which has a bunch of motoshops and tire shops.

Considering that it's around 600-800km from La Paz to Trinidad (where I'll be throwing the bike on a banana boat through the jungle from Trinidad to Cochabamba) I'm thinking I should be all set till then.

Would love to hear your experiences... I did a few site searches and saw people riding through Cochabamba but didn't see much on tire purchasing.
