Just guessing but if it was 12 month of 69 it would be a 70. The really small 70 trunks would most likely be a spacesaver spare.
69 Z28 RS Scuncio Hi Performance
69 SS L78
67 SS Chevelle
64 Corvette
66 GTO Tiger Gold
77 Trans Am Special Edition

HI code is for 1968 1969 Camaros so it would not be a 70. My car is 11D 68 and it was in the trunk so if its 9 of 68 probably the original spare

The "HI" space saver wheel was also used on 1969-1972 Firebirds, so there's no way to know what year you have. If it's the same date format as the KH wheels, the 9 would represent the month and the 12 is the day of the month, so September 12th. But that's just a guess because I don't believe KH made the space saver wheels. As for the year, it's anywhere between 1968 and 1972. However, I see something VERY lightly stamped to the left of the 9. Can you make anything out?
