Are these tires mounted to wheels?

If not, are the beads the same distance apart?

As they sit, the left tire looks 1/2 flat, but slightly wider IMHO.

they both appear to be the same width. Tire B has a more rounded look to it. I would think that tire B would be more of a performance tire based on that fact.

Well tire B is a Metzler 880 XXL... when it is mounted it will give the appearance that it is wider... if you are looking for taller then go with A.

TIRE B in both pictures looks wider. Mental is smart and placed a piece of paper top and bottom to take out the curve and direct my eye on width only, taking out the optical illusion. Try it!.:D

Tire A looks wider, but just due to tread pattern and crown?

Cropping in photoshop says the Metzeler is 4% wider and 1.5% taller than the Dunlop. So now lets have some pics with them mounted on 8.5" rims assuming they are both intended for 18" wheels. ;). So what are you up to Taz ???
I am up to about 5'6" give or take an inch or so... :D
You are correct, 18" on a modified RC rim.
Been finishing up the bike. Last thing left is the pipes which are being fabricated as I type. When rim returns from its mod and installed she shall be done.
Trust all is well on your end...
