Terra high front fender at speed?

Had to do a way faster than speed limit run on the Interstate for an hour or so today to try to make an appointment. Windy, gusty conditions, lots of big trucks on the road.
The front end of the Terra really felt overly light, doing a slight head-shake every time passing trucks and catching the turbulence's from the gusty wind off the trucks. Not like a heart stopping, oh sh*% situation, but very uncomfortable for longer periods of time.
Thinking that's that very large high front fender catching the wind? Maybe the Metzler Sahara front getting a little squirrly at speed? Combination of both? Whats your experience?

Will switching to a different front tire solve that?

Anybody want to trade their low Strada fender for my high Terra fender perhaps?

And yes,yes, I know I should take it easier on the throttle, leave myself more time, but this is the way I am .
