Question: Anyone know about compact suvs?

Am looking to purchase a compact suv and am looking at the toyota rav 4 and nissan rogue. Does anyone have any thoughts on how they compare?
Would also like to consider the new toyota venza but the the 19 inch wheels are too large and want to trade them out for 18 inch rims and wheels after market. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether this would be worth the cost and how difficult it would be to sell the 19 inch rims and wheels.
Would probably get the venza if wheels were smaller but would also like to have thoughts on the rav 4 and the rogue.
Thank you all for your help.

Well the venza is a totally different car from the rogue or rav4. the rav4 has a third row seat option which is great. it also depends on the luxuries you enjoy and your budget. the rav4 is a relatively inexpensive vehicle, but its not very luxurious. no leather seat options and not much difference between trim levels.
rav4 probably has a better resale value as well, and has an option v6 engine.
