If we're talking about the Raster package then.

See pg 200 in the help file
http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/raster/raster.pdf for writeFormats()

Depending on how many bands I find geotiff to be a decent format but
most formats on the list are readable by Arc.

Otherwise if you need additional formats or are just using the sp
package see the rgdal package for export options.
