Speed sensors and tpms sensors are different. Speed sensors are not in the wheels.

It's funny you say that. In my truck with new wheels I just put all 4 sensors inside my spare tire lol.

Also if you have extra wheels with sensors on them you have to reprogram TPMS every time you swap wheels so it will see the new sensors.
