You just need to shop around. A x1.5 knobby may be a bit uncommon these days but they used to make them. You can always try x1.75s and see if they fit.
At one time I believe there was a tariff on MTBS to protect American manufactures, and the way they decided this by how fat a tire the bike could take. SO some lower end mountain bikes (or all terrain bikes since bikes at that price range were not thought to be used off road much) came with and were recomended for smaller tires to get around the tariff.
