Yes, the Tubus Tara Big Apple has a larger hoop over the tire, to fit the
aforementioned tire. Your "standard" Tara doesn't give enough clearance.
Also the horizontal struts are supposed to be horizontal so you can attach
your pannier clips to them. Panniers may not like the angled struts, and
it could tilt the panniers back enough to cause other problems (toe
overlap, handling, etc).
I agree that the best solutions would be:
1) Tubus Tara Big Apple, with Tubus Mid-Fork eyelets to keep the struts
2) a different front pannier rack (Hub Area Rack, or many other options)
