I could be wrong but I don't think it's the mount that normally causes the issue but the combination of the height of the bass drum plus the depth of the tom.

Whatever the mount's like it's going to end up at the same height which means unless you're tall in the upper body you'll constantly be hitting the rim or alternatively are going to mount the toms wide of the center of the bass drum to allow you to bring them lower .... or buy a kit with much shallower toms which will obviously affect the sound.
