Explanation:
Actually I think "overall width" alone would do, since this is what it seems to mean in tractor-speak. Your xpression is found in the Spanish specifications of John Deere tractors, and when you can find an English equivalent it simply says "overall width". Here are both for the 5090EH model:

"Dimensiones
Distancia entre ejes 2180 mm
Largo máximo (incluyendo los brazos de levante) 3570 mm
Ancho a la cara externa del rodado 2010 mm [...]"
https://www.deere.com/assets/pdfs/region-1/products/tractors...

"Dimensions
Wheelbase 2179 mm
Overall length 3586 mm
Overall width 2010 mm [...]
https://www.deere.com/assets/pdfs/region-1/products/tractors...

And the 5076EF:

"Largo máximo (incluyendo los brazos de levante) 3655 mm
Ancho a la cara externa del rodado (mínimo) 1381 mm"
https://salinas.olx.com.ec/tractor-agricola-j-deere-5076ef-a...

"Tractor Dimension:
Overall Length = 3911 mm.
Overall width = 1382 mm."
http://tomegypt.com/new/index.php/product/5076ef-oos-narrow-...

Other tractor company specs such as Ford also seem to give just "overall width", and I think that by default it means this.

However, here's a John Deere specs page that gives two different overall widths:

"Dimensions, in. (cm)
A - Standard wheelbase 80.7 (205) 80.7 (205) 80.7 (205) 80.7 (205)
B - Overall length (including draft links) 140 (355.6) 140 (355.6) 140 (355.6) 140 (355.6)
C - Overall width - outside edge of tires 74 (188) 75 (190.5) 77 (195.6) 77 (195.6)
Overall width - rear axle - flange to flange 57.3 (145.5) 57.3 (145.5) 57.3 (145.5) 57.3 (145.5)"
http://crossimplement.com/john-deere-5065e-utility-tractor-s...

And clearly the first, "outside edge of tires", is the one that corresponds to yours, so I'd put that.

Curious, by the way, to find slightly different figures in the Spanish and English brochures for exactly the same tractor; 1 mm difference in the wheelbase for the 5090EH, and 1 mm difference in the overall width for the 5076EF, for example. Surely negligible, but a bit strange.
