Outdoors are you playing on a smoothly paved rink made for hockey (boards are a good sign for smooth pavement) or is it something more like a playground surface like a basketball court?

If it is smooth I'd go with a much much softer wheel than 88a, probably around a 78-80 because it could feel slick with a hard wheel. As for a more rough surface I've had good luck with 84a's that lasted a while. If you're using a puck, it's probably a smoother surface where you'll need more grip. The higher the "a" number, the longer they'll last and the faster they'll be but, trust me, if your wheels are too hard for the surface it will be hard to push off, turn, stop, etc.
