You'll get lots more lumens/dollar using the XM-L2. You'll need more of them though, so if lenses or reflectors aren't cheap, then that may make the SST-90 the better choice.

There is lots of discussion of running multiple LEDs at 12V in the following threads. You may want to skip to post #100 in the first one, #60 in the second one.
