Please use the forum search and/or a Google Search on this topic. It has been covered many times before. Here's Tableau's default position on the matter, but there are workarounds which have been covered in the forums here before.

Tableau "purposefully" doesn't support speed-gauges (out the box) as they are (generally) seen as a poor way to communicate information.
Here's some references to help you make the case to your client/boss!
however if you fail with that...there is always a creative way to create (almost) anything with Tableau
hope that helps

If you google "Tableau Speedometer" you'll get a bunch of links to explore.
This is the one I delved into when I was required to do a speedometer by a customer:
Special note: There is not a lot of love for speedometers in the tableau world. And for good reason. There are better ways to depict what you need to show. A speedometer is not as clear visually as a bullet graph, for example. To support that principle, when I made my speedometer for the user, I also showed the same data in other ways side-by-side on the demo dashboard. Christmas *****. Line charts. Donut charts. Pie charts. Bar graphs. Bullet graphs. I was really proud of the speedometer I ended up making and put a lot of time into it. (Actually, it was a combo of a half donut chart plus the speedometer line. It was a masterpiece.) Once the user saw what bullet chart did for them, that's what they went with.
