Do I need heavier posts on both sides of the gate?

No. The regular 2" steel post can support a 6' wide gate in 4', 5', and 6' height. When mounting a gate post it is recommended to make the hole deeper than a regular post used as a line, end, or corner post. The gate post still is the same depth in the ground as the fence posts but the concrete footer should be deep enough to assure it is below the frost line (minumum of 36" required for all heights).
