Like Matt said, those are so-called winter tracks based upon widened standard tracks.
Spoiler
Late type "winterketten":
These were later replaced by more robust "eastern tracks", introduced in the summer of 1944. Ostketten were enlarged outwards and secured by bolts, making them easier to install. They helped to decrease the rolling resistance and ground pressure - for example, T-34-76 showed ground pressure of 0.71 kg/sq cm, Jagdpanzer IV with Ostketten had "only" 0.67 kg/sq cm -  but they were twice as heavy as the standard tracks.

Comparison:

Interesting tracks

I believe they're Winterketten track extensions used to help in the winter conditions.
