you can zip files in other formats with 7zip not sure if you will get the same great compression

tar, zip, 7zip formats

another great feature is you can add
a password and encrypt file names
also you can split files into multiple sections if needed

Here's the files supported by WinRAR:

Compress:
.zip
.rar

Decompress:
.rar
.zip
.cab
.arj
.lzh
.ace
.7-zip
.tar
.gzip
.uue
.bz2
.jar
.iso
.z

Another very good (de)compression utility is WinACE. Much better and more options than WinZIP, as well.
