It will be close, but what is the width?

Also, you will need a set of hub rings since the cb of the Passat is 57.1mm

There are useful calculators online that will indicate whether your wheel change will work. There are many factors to be considered when changing from one width/diameter to another. Some of these changes can involve switching out the entire steering knuckle, which isn't all that big of a deal, but you'll have to get it re-aligned. Re-alignment isn't that big of a deal either. You can do it yourself if you take the time and study and understand the process more fully. The biggest pain in the ass is getting the camber bolts unstuck.
If it's your only vehicle, it would be best to stick with the current/stock set-up. Because nobody really cares about your car but your boss, and that's only because the car gets you to work reliably.
