You need to just download the .rar unarchiver and it will allow you to extract using the default tool. Search for unrar using Synaptic or type this in terminal

sudo apt-get install unrar

EDIT: btw unrar is included in the package ubuntu-restricted-extras which is good to install on a fresh system. It includes other plugins, codecs etc
