The way a stone can take a chip out of a glass windshield, I'm sure it's very easy to tear a hole in the vinyl. I have the stripes on the front of my car ending in front of the cowl, I didn't take it all the way down the bumper so I am not as prone to get nicks in the vinyl, however, someone recently showed me all the little nicks they got on their bumper stripe from stones. Come to think of it, I actually got one little nick in my vinyl above the windshield from a stone, so it is pretty normal.
