On smooth asphalt the 83a wheel is a bit faster.

This is why I say screw the skate boots for Outdoor skates. Get BETTER padded sole athletic shoes. Then you can roll with the 83A wheels and it still feels OK for foot comfort.
Don't make the wheels too responsible for your foot comfort, this narrows the options of what they can give you in other departments.
