Due to replace all 4 tyres on my QQ 1.5 Tekna

Whats the current recommendations on what to replace with

Currently they are Conti Eco Contact 5  215/60/R17

Should I replace with exactly the same, different Conti, other brand etc

Thoughts appreciated

I bought Conti's last time I bought a pair of new tyres. I only do about 9,000mi a year, so tyres aren't such a big cost for me, but the Contis do only seem to last about 22,000 as front tyres on my 2L QQ+2. 

I put the new tyres on the back and have the still good back tyres moved to the front, which means I'll get four years use out of each pair. I'd rather wear them out than have to replace part worn tyres due to age!

If I were doing more miles, I'd be looking at different brands with better longevity or better price; I paid about £240 for a pair.
2011 model QQ+2, n-tec, red, 2L turbo diesel.
