Hmmm looking at those figures I'd say it's border line. With a load it would be stretching the point a little. But lots of people run alloys with total disregard for load rating. You pays your money......

1510kg max axle weight that is 755kg (780kg VW mismatch advice) Wheel/tyre loading 100

...the nearest above (to be 'legal' you only need 99 as that is the plate weight.)

...and I 'think' all wheels/tyres have to be max axle weight rated.

They will be safe for what you say the vehicle is used for. If you think you are likely to exceed 1380kg on either axle they are not going to be upto the job. Load up the van and get down to your local weigh bridge to find out the definitive answer, and for peace of mind.
From your Description, I'd be suprised if you came anywhere near 2500kg fully loaded which will be well within the capabilities of these wheels.
