Does anyone know if the Sd.kfz 7 and Sd.kfz 10 shared the same type of track?

I have tried to find this info online with no result. Looking at pictures they look the same but its always hard to tell dimensions and such from pictures without a direct side to side comparison.

Any help would be appreciated!

Sd.Kfz. 10 Track width 240 mm

Width increase is 50%

Same design but definitely not the same track. One was in the 1-tonne weight class and the other 8-tonne.
