I know the rear is tall which probably contributes to the front, but really can't see how it can be the cause of the problem.

Almost. I changed the front 908 to a tkc 80 and still had the wobble although it was not quite so scary when it did happen. Then I changed the rear 908 to a karoo and it was gone. Admittedly the rear 908 was well worn when I replaced the front tire.

I really like the 908 combo for the type of riding I do so especially in the early season. I keep the speed reasonable when I am on the slab.
