SOURCE: no toilet flange
Go to a hardware outlet(Lowe's, HomeDepot, etc.) and ask for a commode drain extension that can be placed over the existing and bring it up to the level of your floor. I also like the wax rings with the cup molded in. These can be doubled up also but not as reliable as the extension.

SOURCE: Toilet on uneven floor
I believe that I qualify... over 300 toilets installed in the past 15 months!!
I would go with the wax rings... but I would press the ring into the base of the toilet before installing the toilet....that way you are sure to have a good seal to the toilet....
If you actually read the directions, the manufacturer will tell you to press the wax ring onto the toilet....then install it onto the floor drain.
I guess that a PLAIN wax ring placed on the floor drain (since it is recessed) before placing the rubber-sleeve equipped ringed toiled is a good safety measure... I have done that an it work about 37 times out of 40.
Good question - BTW.. and well worded. THANKS for being specific and precise!!

Testimonial: "Sounds like a good idea. Not sure about the plain wax ring on the floor however. Doesn't this wax ring need a rubber sleave going into the drain?"
SOURCE: Have replaced wax ring on
Have you thoroughly warmed the wax ring before installation? I don't know the exact temperature required, but the rings tend to split apart rather than form a nice seal if they are a bit cool. 65 is definitely too cool. I have put the ring in the oven on the lowest possible setting for about 30 minutes. Or a closed car in the sun can work well too. Good luck, Al K

Contact a plumbing supply store, they carry repair flanges for this.
