I need to know how wide the rear and front tires are from inside to inside and outside to outside.
Can anyone who has one of these please measure theirs and post it here?
Thanks!

Wheelbase: center to center distance fore & aft.
Track is what you are looking for & a TO30 is a row crop tractor, i.e. adjustable track.

I'm trying to figure out if a rail style car hauler will work for getting her from point A to Point B or if I need to find a flat bed/solid deck style trailer. and how big.

What Ken was saying is that the TO 30 has a very much adjustable wheel base so it depends on how it is adjusted now whether it would fit on your trailer as it is or if it would have to be adjusted to fit on the rails. The owners book shows the front wheels can go from 48 inches all the way out to 76 inches, just depends how it is now adjusted. Another thing that can throw the measurements off is what size tires are on the two being measured.

Thank you! Guess I need to have the current owner measure how it's set so I know if it will fit then.

Do you have a repair or operator's manual? There is a chart with tread distance, wheel arrangements in there.
I guess like what Richard and Ken are saying, you have a trailer with rails 'X' appart. And this is what you need to adjust the front and rear wheel center distances to. don't worry about factory distance, you need to be concerned with the trailer. The front and back wheels can be moving narrower or wider in - hours, not minutes, but with one trailer, you must leave them for the duration.
Since you may not have the manual, some one on here may have a chart with the wheel thread distances in inches, and how the rear wheel centers and rims must be arranged to get to that point. Think of this as a puzzle with heavy pieces, you will have to take the time to study the way the centers and rims must bolt together to get onto the trailer rails.
The front will be easier, but the bolts may not have been touched in decades, if ever, so like I said, allow several hours to do this.

Should you need to change the rear wheel, here's a chart with the different arrangements and the resulting spacing.

As Tony mentioned, how hard it is to change the spacing is highly dependent on whether the bolts are rusted or not (and how much weight is in the rear tires). In my case I needed an angle grinder to get some of the bolts free. But once everything was loose-- which was a job-- it was straightforward and not much time.
