If the hole is a bit smaller than the drill's shaft then they can probably be screwed on pretty securely.

If it's significantly smaller then drill it out to a bit smaller than the drill's shaft diameter and screw it on.

If its larger I would say cut out a piece of thick plastic drill the correct sized hole in it, bolt the wheel to it and screw it onto the drill
Team Imperial - What is that, metric?

You can use red or green loctite but you'll have to cut the shaft and rill out the wheel everytime you want to change it or if you still have the reverse screws which came with the motor you can put those in with a washer on top to stop the wheel unscrewing.
