Anyone get chips in their vinyl stripes?

I am wondering how durable these stripes are. Does road debris speckle and beat up these stripes? I just had my car PPF the whole front end and they went over the stripes as I told them. Superior protection but there is a slight air gap between stripes and paint that is slightly annoying. They can cut out the stripes if I want and keep them bare and get rid of it if I want. Any feedback or thoughts?

So it’s either leave the stripes bare and let them get beat with the road or cover them in PPF and live with a small white line on edges but they’ll be shielded from any chips. It depends on stripe durability to me. Below is what they look like covered with PPF. The vinyl is very thick and the PPF can’t make that transition perfectly.

Just metal chips in the air filter
I'm STILL getting these at 3000 miles! Time to blow out the hood again.
Wow really, I just cleaned mine for the first time, guess I’ll be doing it again…
Nice. Anyone have stripes that are 5 years old that are naked?

this car is way more comfortable than I thought it’s becoming my new daily. Love it. I do mostly interstate driving so rock chips are a big problem for me. Big trucks sandblast the car like you wouldn’t believe. I even had them PPF my front windshield! My bro calls me bubble boy.
The windshields on these cars are horrid soft garbage, driving into the sun they look like they’ve been sand blasted! (last three challengers all the same) I’m flabbergasted by it! I’ll take the 70’s glass in a heartbeat
