Rim width.

7,0 J x 17, ET49, LK112/5

To make sure the rim fits, it has to be the right width. That's exactly what the first number indicates in inches. The rim in the example is 6 inches wide. 1 inch is equal to 25.4 mm.
The rims of the majority of Golf V models are between 5 1/2 inches and 7 1/2 inches wide.

Rim diameter.

16 inch or 19 inch. You can find out the size of the rim by looking at the number after the x. Most Golf V models are permitted to have a diameter of 15 inches to 17 inches.
Tip: The larger the rims, the shorter the distance to your wheel recesses - it's often too short for snow chains. Ask your Volkswagen Partner about the maximum size with which you can use snow chains on your Golf V.

Rim offset.

ET stands for 'Einpresstiefe' in German, which refers to the offset. How great is the distance between the contact surface and the wheel centreline in millimetres? In the example, it's 48 mm. The rims on your Golf V normally have a rim offset of between 47 mm and 50 mm.

Bolt pattern.

The bolt circle (BC) is the innermost circle of the rim. It has several openings through which the rim is fixed to the wheel flange.

Number of screws.

The number of screws with which the rims are fixed to the wheel flange is different on every vehicle. Your Golf V has 5.
