With any method your try, there's going to be some room for error. Probably the most accurate way would be to use a gyroscopic sensor. Using only encoders, you'll have to find the encoder value that gives you the most accurate results.

I have had similar problems trying to fine tune the turning. Without the use of the gyro sensor, your best option is to use the encoders. The turns will also be more precise with less motor power. The slower the speed, the smaller the error.
