I have a 21 TH, I am running 265/65 goodyear duratracs. I did have to trim the inside front lip of the front wheel well. That is all I had to trim and it was a very small amount. Basically the bottom edge of the front wheel well on the inside lip was all I had to trim. Took about half an inch off of the inside of the wheel well so it's not even visible from the outside. You have to put your head in the wheel well to see it. And for your spare I have a 245/70 duratrac. Circumference is close enough to work fine but because it's thinner it fits in the spare compartment. The trimming took me about 5 or 10 minutes with a dremel. It's just a little plastic that needs to be trimmed.

I keep it at about 10 psi and keep an air pump with me. I had to lower the psi to make it soft enough to slide in the compartment. It sits in there just like stock if you don't keep it inflated.

Here are the actual specs for the duratracs in both sizes. 255 is 1.5" taller and .7" narrower. You will need much more cutting with the 255/75, especially on the front bumper with a 19+. That being said, the cutting is really not that hard. If you have to do the pinch seam, I used a angle grinder with a cutoff wheel. Then for cutting the front bumper, I used a multi tool with a drywall bit. Then cleaned up the edge with a metal file. You could also use a razor bland, knife, or sand paper. Just depends on how big you want to go. I ended up with 265/70s on my 2019.
