Two suggestions;

MPH bike shop is on Via Brazil, next to the Harley shop (Bikers of Panama). They generally have a decent selection. Be sure to look in the storeroom, not just what´s on the shop floor.
Also, Joe Hummer has a shop out near Miraflores Locks and often has some good tires. Unfortunately I don´t have his number with me (I´m in Colombia), but look in the white pages for him.
