There is nothing at the front rotors that can cause the speedometer to fail. The only thing there is a wheel speed sensor for the abs brakes. There is no relationship between the speedometer and the front wheels. there is also no adjustment at all. if your brakes squeak some, give it a few days for the pads and rotors to break in and seat. The speedometer is controlled by the vehicle speed sensor located on the transmission and generally not even within easy reach.
