I think its more about traction of the wheels at some point and not all about the motors... You can have the best motors, and if your wheels slip, your robot is no good. Also, the weight and size of your robot ..You dont need 24V!!!! Just get some good 12 volters and reduce the weight of your robot and make your wheels better.
