You're right about them being faster, but smaller wheels have a tighter turn radius than larger wheels. So better really depends on what your aiming to get out of your wheel.
As for the original post, larger or smaller wheels are all about preference. Each has their advantages and shortcomings, so if you want to try switching it up then by all means do so. You might like smaller wheels better, and if you don't, then just swap back in your larger wheels
