It depends on how permanent, strong, and professional you want the robot to be. As for the gearing, I would suggest using the gears because the motor itself has very low torque and depending on your robots size, probably will not be able to move. The wheel diameter problem could easily be solved with some super glue if you wont mind if being stuck on the axle forever. A more temporary solution would be to use duct tape. Again, that all depends on how professional you want the robot to look and how permanent you want it to be. If you want it to look good and be able to take it apart when you are done, I would suggest buying a set of wheels on the internet that fit correctly. Good luck! Let me know if you have any other questions!
