T4 Post Icon How low an ET will fit

I'm looking at some alloys that are 18x8.5J ET14 if I could get them in a higher ET I would but this is my only option.
With a free choice on tyres and the van lowered on Vogtland shocks and springs with 5mm to spring shims is there any chance I could get these to fit and what size tyre would you recommend?

Truth is I was looking at the 18" projektzwo's on ebay but they are 5x100 and ET34 so with a 20mm adaptor will be ET14
Will have to keep an eye out for a set in the correct fitment or start looking into getting a set from Europe
