more lavs or wireless set up?

Looking to spend some money before the end of the year and I'm conflicted. I have four Countryman B6 lavs wired for lectro. Two have hard wire adaptors available. I have an SD 302 mixer along with a Schoeps CMIT-5U shotgun and a Peluso CMEC-6 hyper cardiod mic. I don't own any wireless units and I use the production company's or rent. I like the B-6s but they are not suitable for every occasion.
Here's the issue: Do I buy one good used lectro tx/rx (211 or better), or do I get some more lav choices? I'm thinking Sonotrims, Sankens, or DPAs. I'm very familiar with the Sonotrims (l like them better than Trams), and I've used the DPAs in a studio situation but not hidden. I tried the Sankens a long time ago but had issues hiding them, but that was fifteen years or more ago. Much of what I do requires hiding the mics. Of the mics I've mentioned which would you go for and why? And/or should I start getting some wireless gear, even though I may be able to afford just one so far? I've been doing location sound for a long time, but I find getting opinions from other experienced people is invaluable. Thanks all in advance for your opinions.
