SAT or Subject SAT for Stanford and Rice?

I want to apply to RICE and Stanford, but my dilemma is the following:
I have taken the SAT and the Subject SATs previously with the following score breakdowns:
SAT:
Math - 700
Reading - 790

Subject SAT:
(Math 2) - 730
(Biology) - 700

I now have one more SAT test date before college admissions are due, and don’t know whether I should focus on retaking the SAT (for Superscore) or the Subject SATs (which I improve to around 800 for both).
Also, if you recommend retaking the SAT, should I even send my current Subject SAT scores? (Both Stanford and RICE have Subject SATs as optional, but they are still highly recommended)

    What is your prospective major or focus of study? If it's in a STEM field, I would want to improve either or both of those math scores. The math 2 score is at the 52nd percentile and the bio is at 59 or 72 depending on which bio exam it is. And for fall 2018 admits to Rice, the 25th percentile for SAT composite was 1460 and 75th was 1550. (I didn't look up Stanford.)

    I think I'd focus on the subject tests!
