I enjoy marinating steaks as often as I can and use different types of marinades for each session.  I find that I like the more subtle and sometimes more acidic versions of the recipes for my steaks.  As for Rib Eye steaks they are more substantial in terms of size and require more intense flavor to get deep into the meat.  It's also a good idea to consider the amount of time you intend to marinate the meat.  I would normally marinade up to three hours although you can marinade overnight if you find that your steaks are lower quality.  Marinade for a reasonably long period of time can tenderize the steaks.  If you choose to marinade for longer than 24 hours keep in mind your steaks will turn mushy.  It's best not to marinade for longer than the 24 hour period.  Also, you MUST discard the marinade after use.  Do NOT reuse the marinade for any purpose simply discard the marinade down the drain or in the trash can.  Reusing marinades that have been kept on the meat for more than 24 hours will allow bacteria to spread to spread to other uses which can of course make you ill.  

Best bets are to start a fresh batch of marinades each time you make new steaks and enjoy the flavors.
