OP, I'm not a huge fan of the AMR wheels. I would rather get the TSW's (lighter and rotary forged) or Avant Gardes maybe RTR. I know a good dealer for those brands
I had shops near me quote 6 to 8 hours to install at 85 an hour and one shop at 105 an hour because I didn't buy the parts from him. new shocks and struts and springs and caster camber plates and panhard bar. I did it all by myself in 5 hours time total and that was with a hangup of getting stuck needing an impact gun. Which I now have.
I also had shops who wouldn't give me a set amount of time and just told me it would take as long as it would take.
The fact I did it in 5 hours, by myself and never having done it before, I will never take my car to a shop for anything. If it requires a shop install, not going on my car. I would bet I could do the whole install again in 3-4 hours given that I know exactly how everything goes now.
