Good ideas and points made here.
Choices in tires for the Xterra are not unlike choices with lifts. It is pretty simple and inexpensive to get around 2" of lift on the Xterra, but if you want to go more than that, it gets significantly more difficult, complicated, and expensive (i.e. you need to be worrying about new coilovers, leaf packs, UCAs, bumpstops, brake lines, titan swap, etc.).
Likewise, it is fairly easy and straightforward (i.e melt mod) to put bigger tires on the Xterra up to a certain point, ~33" or 285/75 typically, but once you go past that, you are going to need to worry about and shell out more money things like tire carriers, new wheels, wheel spacers, lifting, frame rubbing, and regearing.
