There is a fairly comprehensive guide on how to do this at the Lash World Tour, which is too long to copy here but the key point is:

You need a sponsor for Tourist and Social Visa extensions

And there is a related question on this site as well:

60 days tourist visa are NOT visas issued on arrival. The link to that SO question is then irrelevant. The first link to lash world tour is excellent though. – Adrien Be Aug 2 '15 at 14:04

You have to apply at least 3 working days before it ends.

It is not a written rule. In fact, as far as I know, it is not a written rule that you can extend a tourist visa (if you ask in 5 different immigration office, you will get 2 to the power of 5 answers)

So I suggest you don't push your luck and do it one week in advance.

That's not true. I extended my 60 days tourist visa several weeks before it ended. The process takes up to 2 weeks so actually, you'd better not wait too long! – Adrien Be Aug 2 '15 at 14:02
Sorry, I meant "at least 3 days". The time it really take depend on which office you are going (plus a blind luck component). In Medan and Bandung, it usually take 2 days. In Jepara, they usually take 3 weeks. I love Indonesian immigration -__- – Madlozoz Aug 16 '15 at 7:29

As far as I know there is NO time limitation in when to apply for a one month extension of a 60 days tourist visa.

I myself applied for such extension several weeks before the end of my visa. This process can take up to 2 weeks so make sure you apply at least 2 weeks before the end of your visa.
