I train at home with dumbells.
If, for the chest press, I do 45lbs for 8-10 reps how much do you guys think I could do on the barbell press?
I would guess 160-180ish.
I know that doesn't answer your question, sorry. Just trying to give my personal input about the question having variable answers.

Maybe throw some plates on a bar and find out for yourself?
agreed with distiller water. there's no correlation. i used to rep out 115lb dumbells for 10 and barely 225x5 bb bench. now that I focused on bb bench, it's gone way up but now I can hardly even put up 115 DB.
i imagine you can push 135 but hard to tell since your body may not be accustomed to the movement
That's like asking for your bf%. we can guess, but the only way is going to the gym and benching for a little. I do recommend researching form a little bit!
Can't do BB to save my life, have had 2 gimpy shoulders my entire life, had surgery in one so if I try any barbell movements I will always, without a doubt, compensate with one and therefore end up selling myself short and being unable to lift well.
Dumbbells all the way for me, so, to answer your question, who knows? Weightlifting is also a matter of muscle memory, to which you are going to have very little when making the transition from DB to BB, so it will be a toss up regardless.
