15" Wheels? Need fix

I need a bit of help. i need to see what others have done to there truck, it might help me out. I got my Mickey thompson tires and wheels in but i had a bit of a problem. here we go.
The truck is a 2003 ranger xlt. The old wheels were
16". I ordered 15" wheels.. When we went to install them we noticed the 15's would not fit/clear the calliper assembly. So the guy installing them said we would have to get 1.5" wheel spacers to make the new wheels fit. it did work but now we noticed that the wheels are not straight up and down it now has negative camber. Any ideas what I need to do to make this right. I am not sure what to do. i dont know if they make a smaller rotor and calliper assembly that will accomidate 15" wheels. or keep the spacers.. But i need to correct the camber issue. Any ideas?

That's strange... lots of people are running 15" wheels with no problems. My 2007 came stock with 16" wheels, and I run 15s in the winter with no issues at all. The clearance is a bit close, but they fit.
What wheels did you buy? What is the backspacing?

I bought Mickey Thompson Sidebiter's. The backspacing is 3.63 with a -46mm offset
