Hi OS,

You're doing great. 55-65kgs on incline dumbbells would be pretty darn impressive. Seated dumbbell presses, most guys won't get far beyond 45kg. Not sure about standing. Never did them before. I got up to 55kgs on them once for a 5 rep set, but I consider myself a gifted overhead presser and think that level would be fairly rare.

Dumbbell rows I think you should aim for at least 85kgs for 10 reps. Use straps. Never get grip slow your back development. You may be able to get as high as 120kgs for reps on dumbbell rows if given enough time. That would be the very top end.

My ability to do front squats (in the form of goblet squats) was limited, as it became hard to get enough weight in place. Work until you simply can't get a heavy enough weight in place.

I also recommend not hesitating to drop the weight slightly and do 15-20 rep sets.

Hope that helps some.
