Yes, it is somewhat of a marketing thing. But it is not a "ploy".
The sidewall on the 18" on the WK2 is nearly half an inch greater than the sidewall of the than the 18" on the KK. The WK2's tread width is also over an inch wider over the KK. The maximum load per tire is approximately 400lbs greater on the WK2's 18". The two are not an apples to apples comparison.
