I think it's just marketing.
They can sell a "package" with the larger engine and special rims. Auto makers often do the same thing such as having to buy aluminum wheels if you want the sunroof.
You may be able to buy the rims separately through the dealership, but they may cost more than the package price if you consider the labor to change them out. It's worth checking into, though.
