The differences in recommended wheel size for the TDI is due to generational differences, gearing and power differences, and stock wheel sizes.  Bolt patterns are not interchangeable.  To see if a wheel may fit, see 1000q: Tire, wheel, offset, and gearing calculator

When choosing tire sizes, stretching the tire slightly is normally better than pinching the tire (tire too wide for wheel width).  Tire width does not equal contact patch width or wheel width.  For example, the tire for a 6.5" wide wheel could have a contact patch between 5.5-8" wide depending on how stretched or pinched the tire is.  Different models and even different sizes of tires have different sidewall profiles and tread contact patches.  Tirerack.com and other tire sellers list tires specifications if the tire manufacturer publishes them.  The can also be found directly at the tire manufacturer's website.  Your local tire store should also have the tires for you to look at in person and usually match online pricing after shipping and installation.

NOTE: virtually all modern OEM VW/Audi wheels use ball seat lug bolts with 14x1.5 bolt thread.  VW/Audi use lug bolts instead of nuts.
