ESC and MOTOR compatibility

Hi i i don't know if i made a mistake recently,


I bought  4 motors without checking if they were okay to work with the ESCs i allready own

and the new motors especifications are the ones below but i've been reading in the web that people use 30A ESCs with similar motors.
