It looks like coroplast was used. Am I correct that the air dam would have problems with impacting tire debris found on interstate highways?

I've been mulling over how to build a coroplast air dam and side skirts that would not disintegrate upon hitting tire casings on the highway ... bend without breaking or limit the damage to one area. Have you seen anything that might give a 'street' capable air dam?
