You really need to balance before using them in the car. .004V at rest turns into 1V difference at the far end of the charge/discharge curve quite fast. If they aren't balanced you'll start toasting cells. I've delt with it already in my PHEV kit on my Prius where my discharge rates are nowhere near what yours are.
