I would tell, that this is perfect :).
Between -55 and -75 should be ok. Less than -75 can be too weak, more than -55 - can be too strong. But the signal strength you wrote is probably for small data rates, and increasing data rate TX power decreases. So -55 is perfect, as with high data rates it would be still more than -70 :).
