Thanks.
Actually it does.

The 300SD is a W126 and W126 use wider wheels and larger tires than W123.

You'll want the proper wheels for a W126.

I"m sure it will be fine - just drive it, make sure you have a decent spare and wheel change gear, and stop worrying. if it goes again, maybe then get back to the worrying, which still be there waiting for you if you need it.
